Kirrihill Grenache Sangiovese Tempranillo 2012 (Clare Valley, SA)
14.8%, Screwcap, $28
It’s roughly hewn and carries just a little too much added acidity, but here the heartiness, the tannic grip and back palate power make this quite substantial.
Good, honest wine if hardly cheap for the style. Sub $20 and this would be more of a winner methinks.
Score: 16.8/89, 89/100
Would I buy it? Not quite. Close.
