2014 Dub Style #2 Grenache

McLaren Vale, SA

A seriously good release here from Dudley and Irina. McLaren Vale Grenache lovers - eat your heart out!


It’s a bit wild, and highly engaging. Fair to say, I love drinking it.

About The Wine

This is a cracking Grenache from Dudley and Irina at Inkwell / Dubstyle.

This is old bush vine fruit fermented as whole bunches. No additions, no fining or filtering, just raw, delicious Grenache from this lovely part of the world.

It is frisky and savoury all at once; a wine that makes you want to bob your head and tap your foot as you slug it down. It's an exploration of winemaking ideas from this dynamic McLaren Vale couple and it's right on the money.

Gary Walsh at the Wine Front was a big fan in his 94 point review. No doubt you will too.

About Inkwell

Husband and wife duo Dudley Brown and Irina Santiago-Brown of Inkwell wines in McLaren Vale, are true advocates of sustainable farming practices and are self confessedly “fanatical about (their) vines and wines.”

Dubstyle is a range of wines designed by Inkwell proprietors as a way for them to stretch their winemaking wings beyond the reaches of their home vineyard.

They've found some stunning vineyards in the surrounding areas to source from, they make the wines at their home in McLaren Vale, then like any great music track, they mix and blend the certain parts until the wine 'sounds' just right. 


Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Crushed spices, clean earth, liquorice, chocolate, forest berries. Medium bodied, glossy and smooth, with a distinct liquorice, almost to sarsparilla flavour, though it’s tempered by dried herb and spice, finishing with a pleasant amaro bitterness that cinches, then extends the palate. It’s a bit wild, and highly engaging. Fair to say, I love drinking it." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Halliday Wine Companion

"Smashing wine. Complex, characterful, long and sinewy. It's hard not to keep coming back for more and more. Herbs, spices and red and black berries. Opens the door to greet you and is still going as the final guests leave." - Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion)
