2014 “The Plantation” Grenache

Colour

Medium / deep red.

Aroma

Attractive ripe dark cherry/blueberry fruit with some leather and chocolate like notes as well. A little spice and earthiness adds to the intrigue. The oak plays virtually no role at all.   

Palate

Juicy, ripe and very soft, the blueberry and cherry flavours fill the mouth totally. It is soft in tannins and the acidity spot on. Carries its alcohol easily.

Summary

The 2nd Grenache released under the Pikes label made from fruit harvested from our Plantation block. A lovely example of Clare Grenache made in a medium bodied style. Try this with rabbit terrine. Drink now or keep for 3-5 years.
