JEANNERET CLARE VALLEY GSM 2016
The single thing I like most about this wine is that when you smell it and taste it, the three varieties are individually apparent. There’s the juicy, fruitiness of the Grenache, the more savoury and darker influence of the Shiraz and then there’s that Malbec which is all red fruits. As a whole it’s magnificent and it’s spicy and fruity in a Christmas pudding sort of way. The palate is pretty and harmonious too. This is a wine that’s nice and easy to drink if you just want a drink and gives you plenty to contemplate if you feel like knuckling down and thinking about the wine.
