The Green Room Grenache Syrah is a new look at a classic Rhone style blend. The Grenache from a McLaren Vale vineyard planted in 1946 is the focal point of this piece. Making up the majority of the blend (92%), most of the Grenache is whole bunch pressed with the fruit spending anywhere from 28 to 88 days on skins. Got a whole lotta skins. This is a young, vibrant, dazzling version of McLaren Vale Grenache which just gets better every year.

"5 Aug, 2020 – This wine has been a rising star and now really sits as one of the best value wines in its style. The nose is all crushed flowers and light red-fruit perfume and there’s a very attractive fusion of gently flinty, wet-stone notes with raspberries and red cherries. The lacy tannins are so finely cut and there’s freshness and depth that really sing here. Playful, yet precise. This is a real gem. Drink now. Screw cap."
