The Winemaker

'Another local superstar in the making, Riley Harrison, continues to deliver in his own, unconventional Harrison way. He has a few rules for making Grenache, which are unsurprisingly the opposite of how it was once made in the region. A less is more approach to respecting the fruit, less oak impact, crunchy, vibrant and aromatic new age Grenache.'

The Wine

'Loaded with ripe cherry, wild strawberries. Sweet baker's spice and sage leap from the glass. All wrapped up with a nice bunch inclusion that provides a savoury lift to the aromatics and fine, silty tannins to the palate. Steak Tartare with all the trimmings.'
