2012 Cirillo The Vincent Grenache

cirillo vincentA wine that has, in a relatively short period of time, established itself as one of the best value Grenaches available. It’s never looked better either.

A sweet core of raspberry and cherry fruit with dried herbs and a touch of bitter chocolate playing foil. Pepper and mace seasoning, a little nuttiness and some orange peel on the back-palate. Very silky with a bit of sandy tannin seeing it out. 92

    Good one JP. New producer for me and I love Grenache. Looks like a bargain I’ll be getting some. DB

  2. Marco (Cirillo) doesn’t go in for big budget advertising and PR but I love this wine. Can drink a fair bit of it and it doesn’t send me broke. The higher tiered Cirillo 1850 Old Vine Grenache for contemplation and venison in chocolate sauce, this more for anytime you feel like a good, unfettered Barossan Grenache for drinking and eating whatever :)
