About

The Cirillo Vincent Grenache lays claim year after year to be one of the country's best value Grenache, and the 2016 is no exception. Marco Cirillo's family lays claim to the world's oldest Grenache vines, the most ancient of them dating back to 1850. The Vincent is the baby of the bunch made from a blend of 80, 90 and 100-year-old vine material. Vincent is a charismatic character, just like his maker. It bucks the trend of big, sweet, oaky Barossa Grenache and sits firmly in the bright, cheery and gluggable camp. A portion of whole bunches give it a lifted perfume and silky texture, while the use of older French oak and stainless steel ensure this is a lot brighter and bouncier than many of its Barossa counterparts.

What it Tastes Like

Redcurrants, raspberries dipped in cream, it's a riot of flavour. The '16 is a little fuller figured than its predecessor. Spiced red licorice and musk lollies make appearances in the palate but it remains dry with a gently tannic through the finish. Good stuff.
