ALKIMI "THE GOOD EARTH" GRENACHE 2018
The appearance is a pale ruby.
Lifted white pepper and red candied fruit tones are apparent on the nose. There are also floral tones of rose hip oil, wild fennel, pencil shaving and vanilla bean. Macerated strawberry completes what is a complex
The palate is soft and mouth coating with macerated strawberry, candied raspberry, caramel and blueberry. Floral notes are also present. The finish shows sarsaparilla-like flavour and it is long and silky.
A wine which will reward patience and can be expected to evolve with interest over the next 5 – 7 years from vintage.
Enjoy this wine in it’s youth with Japanese banquet of sushi and nori rolls.With some bottle age, this wine will be spectacular with slow cooked dishes such as beef brisket.
