Colour: Dark cherry red with a mauve hue.
Nose: Dark raspberry fruit, floral pot pourri and with a hint of Turkish delights and a subtle malty oak note. Remarkably poised and fresh with interesting mineral, quartz stone complexity.
Palate: Textural palate with rich round tannin and piquant acidity with a touch of light soy. Focussed dark fruits, brightness and integration with oak. Excellent length and poise for the cellar
Potential: 4-12 years, longer in a cool cellar. Decant on opening and allow to breathe if possible for a couple of hours.
2013 Vintage: A classic vintage with all the great hallmarks of McLaren Vale.
Northern Exposure Grenache, 2013
