Tiny Volume Huge Flavour
Bengalee Barossa Valley (Greenock) Grenache 2012
Region: Greenock, Barossa Valley, SA
This is serious to very serious Grenache, not that those with sweet cordial like aromas and flavours are without appeal, it's just that this style is another dimension. Like the previous vintage this is from a single vineyard just north of the township of Greenock on the western ridge side of the Barossa Valley.
It's still young so the appeal is another 12 months away but perhaps sample a bottle in mid 2013. Please do not then cellar for 5-10 years as that is not the style and I am not sure what this wine will be like with age. Do not risk it is my advice.
We made a barrel and I continue with the belief that wines like this are the future for the Barossa Valley.
