Cirillo The Vincent Grenache

Marco Cirillo has been focussed on Grenache for many years, one of the few Australian winemakers. He has a vineyard of very old bush vines on the sandy Barossa flats. His original 1850 Grenache is great, but, in small volumes, could not pay the bills. He has extended his portfolio, and The Vincent is the value for money proposition.

The 2015 Cirillo The Vincent is an excellent proposition for the price. It has a gorgeous intense raspberry nose. This continues onto the palate. The sweet raspberry is most prominent on the mid-palate, but it is not overly sweet. Savoury characters reign the fruit in. It is a refreshing wine with a slightly slim mouthfeel.

Score: 90/+
