2020 Basso Garnacha

Stephen Says

“Lighter, warm-climate red wines based on Grenache particularly from McLaren Vale have a growing place on the tables of Australian diners”
From the Latin Bassus, meaning low, Basso is low in additions and speaks clearly of the place from which it comes.

Listen To

Flavour
Raspberry liqueur, red apple skin, autumn, dark spice and cinnamon; a seductive perfume that is vibrant
Texture
Youthful and magically medium bodied. Tea like tannins, that are super fine and linger, carry the red fruits
Goes with
Slow roasted shoulder of lamb with couscous, dates and almonds by Claudia Roden in ‘Med: A Cookbook’
Cellaring
Perfect now but will happily hang around for five years, maybe longer
