Flinty and mineral driven. Oddly light in the glass, given the amount of rich flavor through and through. Delicious wine! - WS Grand Tour 2011
Four and a half glasses
We enjoyed it with caper vinaigrette salmon. Went perfectly with it. Nice, long finish.
Wow, wow, wow! This grenache is an elegant, smooth, sophisticated delight! I have friends who buy it by the case. Anyone who has tasted it knows that it stands up against the higher priced competition. Richard Betts knows his wine and he should be proud of this one.
External Reviews for Betts & Scholl Grenache Barossa Valley
This is a wine with purity, focus, and old-vine concentration (many vines are over 100 years old). It sees a winemaking regime of old wood, which allows the clarity and complexity of the "O.G." (Original Grenache) to shine through.

The palate of the "O.G." is elegant and ethereal, with confetti-like strands of strawberry, raspberry, sweet cooked fruits mixing with whispy notes of bramble, pine needles, crushed flower petals, potpourri and spice. With time in the glass, the wine gains a darker complexity - orange zest and roasted earth providing a background to the technicolor strawberry and raspberry.
