Simon Hackett Old Vine Grenache 2015
Medium bodied, soft fruity red that is mouth filling.
Tasting Notes: Aromas of summer berries, with floral lifts to add complexity. Layers of plush ripe berry fruit soften the palate, firm acid plus toasty vanilla oak add structure. This wine is happily fruit dominated - it fills the corners of your mouth.
Vintaged from low yielding old Grenache vines, this classic red wine displays a vibrant depth of purple tinges on the meniscus. The perfumed lift on the bouquet is complimented by the full, fine palate which is enhanced by maturation in American Oak hogsheads and a light tannin finish. Although drinking well now, this wine will definitely improve with further bottle maturation.
Food Match : Excellent with stews and casseroles, great with pizza or pasta.
