WINE OF THE WEEK - Schwartz 2017 Theile Rd Grenache $35.00ea
***SOLD OUT***Grenache is sometimes nicknamed the pinot of the Barossa, and this is a fine example. Jason Schwarz has made a lighter-bodied, lighter-coloured grenache with perfumed foresty, pot-pourri complexities. It's succulent and soft, light to medium-bodied and the tannins are mild and supple. Screw-cap; 14.3 per cent alcohol.
Ageing? Drink now to eight years.
