2018 Tonic Wines Grenache

The same two vineyard sources combine in the 2018 release of Tonic Grenache.

The fruit is picked early precisely to maintain the beguiling floral aromatics that present in Clare Valley Grenache, in a drier vintage like 2018, this is even more important.

This is man-handled as little as possible on its way to bottle. A small amount of whole bunch in the ferment, only a gentle racking before bottling with a dash of sulphur. What you get is the very essence of Clare Grenache; brightly fruited, impossibly drinkable and more-ish to the last glass.

If you've never tried the tantalising wines styles from Tonic, or never had a lighter style of Grenache that has blown your socks off, there is no better way you could spend $30.

2018 S.C. Pannell Basso Garnacha

The Basso is a lighter, fresher, more 'smashable' version of Grenache from Steve Pannell.

It's Steve's minimal-intervention wine. It's bottled with a minimal amount of sulphur, unfined and unfiltered.

Steve's wines are all about melding with our Australian culture and this is the perfect fit for BBQs and beach cricket.

It's lighter in bodied, dappled wth the lacy tannins and spice of early-picked Grenache - It's just a great anytime/anywhere red from one of the country's finest winemakers.

2018 Aphelion The Confluence Grenache

Crafting McLaren Vale Grenache is the main game for Rob Mack and Louise Rhodes at Aphelion. It's a game they are very skilled at. Every egg a bird, as they say.

Sourced predominantly from gnarly, 80-year-old bush vines rooted in the sandy soils of Blewitt Springs, this fresh and vital version of Grenache is set decidedly to a "Drink-Me-Now" tempo. It's the composite blend of the three Aphelion Grenaches, combining both the 100% whole berry and 100% whole bunch wines into one seamless wine.

There's tension and beauty in this release, which is to say, it's McLaren Vale Grenache at its most irresistible. The 2018 gave Rob fruit with high toned aromatics and silky texture. It's right on the money as a modern example of McLaren Vale Grenache.

2018 Ochota Barrels Fugazi Grenache

Taras Ochota's wines have an air of rebellion about them - constantly challenging the status quo. He combines hands-off winemaking with a meticulous attention to detail and has been creating some of South Australia’s most interesting wines of the last few years.

His Fugazi Grenache is a wine that was ahead of its time. It set the tone for a more elegant, pure-fruited, medium-bodied style of McLaren Vale Grenache which is definitely in vogue at the moment.

The 2018 release is astoundingly complex and taut with a sense of youth and vitality.

A Grenache with a pure heart and a rock and roll soul.

2018 Forlorn Hope Songs from Mars Grenache

The wines from the hands of Matthew Rorick have a V8 engine in a sports car frame.

His second foray into the world of Barossa Valley reds has produced a red wine of raw magnetism. This is old vine Grenache from old dry-grown vines - this is the essence of the Barossa Valley mainlined through one of the USA's cult winemaking stars.

There's a deftness to the wine. Deep pools of quintessentially Barossan fruit with an energy that tugs you back to the glass.

Only 60 dozen were made. The asking price is ludicrous. Jump quick if you want to catch this rare bird before it flies the coup.

2018 Bondar Wines Rayner Vineyard Grenache

There are only 0.7ha of beautiful 40+-year-old Grenache vines on the Rayner Block. The public knows the vineyard for its supreme Shiraz. Many a winemaker has sought it for its stunning Grenache.

This is the top red wine in the Bondar range for a reason. As with all of the best modern styles of Grenache coming out of McLaren Vale, the emphasis here is squarely placed on making a fresh, aromatic yet powerful style of wine that tells the story of vintage through the lens of this noble grape.

Drink some now, keep some for later, we have a feeling this will be something pretty special in a few years time. Another win for the Bondars and for all lovers McLaren Vale Grenache lovers!
