Wine Review: This bright red colored Grenache from down under is very good. It opens with a smoky oak like bouquet with hints of strawberry in the background. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild strawberry with notes of nicely integrated mild minerality and oak. I also detected a hint of red plum as well. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Grenache would pair well with a DiNic's roast pork sandwich. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2017 Basket Pressed Grenache shows a bright crimson color and a nose filled with rose petals and cherries. The palate offers rich Morello cherry and strawberry conserve, followed by soft, gentle tannins and a refreshing acidity. It is sprightly, elegant and delicious. This wine is ideally served at room temperature with lighter dishes such as tapas.
