THE BLEWETT SPRINGS
DetailsThe nose is vibrant and youthful displaying fruit characters of cherry, raspberry and rhubarb with spices and fresh flowers in the background. As the wine opens more layers emerge with traces of soil characters and more violets. The red fruit characters have intensity on the palate and are very focused with a great balance of ripeness and flavour development. There is an underlying game character and dried savoury herb nuances of sage and oregano build on the mid palate. The flowery, powder like tannins match the elegant nature of the wine wonderfully and provide a very unobtrusive, yet vital structure to the wine. The natural acidity is a hallmark of Grenache from this sub region and certainly features in this wine. It evolves in the glass and provides more enjoyment with each sip. This wine will certainly benefit from careful cellaring for at least 15 years and will provide immense joy and interest along the way.
