GREENOCK CREEK, CORNERSTONE GRENACHE 2006

Barossa Valley
South Australia

The opaque purple 2006 Cornerstone Grenache, sourced from a 63-year-old vineyard, was aged in a mix of new and used French oak hogsheads. It offers up an alluring bouquet of mineral, leather, and wild cherry leading to a full-bodied (18.5% alcohol), super-rich wine with no hard edges. Opulent and pleasure-bent, it could be likened to a great vintage of Henri Bonneau Chateauneuf du Pape on steroids. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. 94 WA
