Tintara Grenache Mclaren Vale 2005

Member Review by SetarconeX:

Compared to the French and Spanish Grenache I'm used to, this one comes across as lighter, more fruity, slightly acidic, and with much easier tannins. To many people, this would be a list of prime attributes. To me, this is exactly the opposite of why I drink Grenache. I'd very much like something with a bit more heft to it. That isn't to say it's a bad wine, but in playing up the fruit, it gives up much of the earthiness that usually makes this varietal so interesting.

Château Reynella:
Kelly’s Revenge is perfect at the end of a long day. This great new range of Australian wines is packed full of fruit flavours and finished off with attitude. Strong, bold and full of character Kelly can handle anything. Kick back, relax, forget about the pressures and take revenge with Kelly.
