"From the mountainous wine region of Sierra de Gredos, this is grenache from one of Spain’s great, avant garde wine producers. So perfumed, all red cherry, anise, fennel, cranberry and rose petals, with the faintest whiff of smoky, warm rocks. The palate finds similar flavours, sheathed with herb-laced, stony, ultra fine tannins. Incredible persistence of flavour, tension and succulence are noteworthy comments. Such a beautiful, fine wine to drink. Utterly delicious and detailed." 96 Points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

 "It's from a vintage that feels very complete and balanced and delivered very healthy grapes, good yields and grapes with ripe flavors and very good freshness. The wine is juicy but also sharp and mineral and nuanced. It has great depth and is finely knitted, textured, mineral and saline. I think this will surpass the already-amazing 2016. There is such purity of fruit and the wine is so intense that the oak is completely transparent. I had the chance to drink this wine on repeated occasions, as I find it has an unbeatable price for the quality. It's a more complete version of the 2016; it's bright and transparent, spicy, elegant, nuanced, juicy but complex, with not only fruit but also violets and an herbal side, and it's characterful with finesse and texture. High drinkability with aging potential." 93 Points, Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate Magazine

''Grenache does superbly well in Australia, but where I am really excited about drinking the variety from is Madrid's high country DO. Old vines, elevation, rugged vineyards, old school winemakers, some new-schoolers but most all just wanting to show us a pure expression of the variety from their place. Indeed, for mineral-laden red wines of bright fruit and ease of drinking, Madrid DO grenache has to be right, right up there in the list.'' Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
