Sherrah Grenache Rose 2021
This is part of the new wave of South Australian producers with a new look of bright, gluggable and deceptively serious wines. No more flattening your palate with 110% oak, this is crunchy and fresh with a nod to its warm home in the Vale. Alex 'Boy Friday' is chief swirler and sniffer a title he self-bestowed and one we think gives you a good idea about what's going on at Sherrah.
When we tasted this recently, we all cooed at the upfront blast of juicy fruit, sweet spice, and absolute slurpable nature of this Rose. Bliss! It's pure, crispy, plush and so delicious. Plenty of raspberry and red cherry fruit that is punctuated by drifting spice and crunchy acidity. Just proves that grenache is such a perfect varietal for rose. This is beach and BBQ ready baby!2021GrenacheAustralia436$22.00 As low as $19.80
Bondar Junto GSM 2020
Grenache 68%, Shiraz 10%, Mataro 9%, Carignan 7%, Cinsault 5%, Counoise 1%. All the things.
A little bit of everything here – red fruits, pepper and spice, dried herbs, rock salt and black olive. Medium-bodied, a light dusting of tannin, quite fresh and crisp, also quite saline too, bony feel, and a finish of solid length. Understated style here.

Sherrah Red et al Grenache, Shiraz, Nero D'Avola 2019
This was a delight and utterly delicious surprise. The funny thing was, that this wine was bought in by accident but we loved it so much we just had to have some. These are small batch, Mclaren Vale wines with a focus on freshness with Alex Sherrah heading the charge. We love what he is doing and know you will too.
Lifted with peppery, sweet spice and bright fruit that is a mash-up of raspberry, black currant and blackberry all fused together. Forward and fleshy with lovely focus and full of energy. The palate is long and easy to enjoy with the blend providing plenty of interest and something a little different to the usual GSM coming out of the region. Top stuff!2019GrenacheAustralia436$30.00 As low as $27.00

Yangarra Hickinbotham Grenache 2020Naturally fermented in 1800L stone amphora with little agitation aside from wetting the cap. 90 days on skins. An additional 8 months in amphora. This cuvée is akin to the finest pinot; svelte, detailed and uplifting. Aromas of sour cherry, raspberry, rosewater, mace and orange zest. The superior wine of 2019 here, or at least what I've tasted to date. Stunning. The tannins, growing with air and the next sip. The finish, jitterbug energetic, chiselled and chamois of texture. Long and succulent. Another addition to the Australian stable of finessed world-class grenache. NED GOODWIN MW, Halliday Wine Companion2019GrenacheAustralia436$61.00 As low as $54.90

Aphelion Trennery Grenache 2021Onkaparinga. A wonderful word. Plum and cherry, ripe and spicy, an earthy coal-like character. It’s firm and almost liqueur-like in intensity, with firm dusty tannin, and a dry plum and dried flower finish. Very good, but not quite as good as the other two single vineyard wines. Kind of sticky in its firmness. GARY WALSH, www.winefront.com
From the Onkaparinga Hills, a parcel of dry-grown bush vines, fermented as whole clusters and aged in a single, larger-format cask. This parcel was planted in the early 1970s and it has a sappy feel (whole clusters) and bright, very pure raspberries and some leafy elements on offer, as well as blueberries. The palate has quite smooth and ripe tannins, holds a fresh edge (low pH) and delivers a similar combination of red and blue fruits as seen on the nose. A little, chewy stone pop at the finish. Nuanced and elegant. Good now, but even better in a year or two. (95) NICK STOCK, www.jamessuckling.com2020GrenacheAustralia436$74.00 As low as $66.60
Ministry of Clouds Kintsugi GSM 2018
Sum of the parts…
Kintsugi is the ancient Japanese art of “golden joinery”, the creation of enduring beauty from broken fragments of ancient pottery as they are pieced together with lacquer laced with gold.
It befits our desire to meticulously blend only our very best parcels of old vine fruit from a single year. In direct contrast with the Australian obsession to label single varietal wines, Kintsugi is the simply the best Southern Rhone inspired wine we can make in a year, no matter its components.
The whole, we hope, is greater than the sum of its parts.
An elegant, but deeply fruited wine, showing aromatic floral red fruit lift, and spice from old vine Grenache, built upon intense blue fruits and violets of dry grown Mataro and Shiraz. Layered and long this wine exhibits a tightly wound core of dense red berried crunchy fruit, framed by persistent sandy tannins, and bright acidity.

Aphelion Rapture Grenache 2021
The song by Blondie, in their somewhat stilted version of ‘rap’, or the second coming? It’s a difficult choice, though I think I prefer the former. The bottle I have is not the difficult cellaring shape shown here, more a traditional shape, albeit in thick heavyweight glass. And cork sealed, though nice corks they are.
Really exotic and spicy, ripe strawberry and raspberry, orange zest and gravel. It’s firm and dry, ultra-mineral feel to it, almost a chinotto/amaro character, pumice stone tannin, and a very long finish. Outstanding. And so much character. Throw your hands in the air! GARY WALSH, www.winefront.com
The top expression of grenache from Aphelion, this is a combination of Wait and Brini vineyards, both containing bush vines planted in the 1940s. This is a complex wine already, with a nose that’s so enticingly complex and detailed. It has bracken, sappy elements, berry pastry, spiced notes, raspberry, red plum and candied orange peel. The palate has a very plush, complete and seamless feel. This is so commanding, yet so deliciously appealing at once. Impressive poise, with long tannins that drive and frame the red and dark-berry fruit-soaked finish. Matured in a single, neutral demi-muid. Drink or hold.
