Pretty stuff, our Peacock’s Fan!
Out of stock
In our beloved McLaren Vale, South Australia our maritime climes produce the picture-perfect Grenache. McLaren Vale is not only the jewel in the crown for Australian Grenache, it is also the home to our very own, Peacock’s Fan.
Our Peacock’s Fan Grenache struts its stuff (with its tailfeathers in full fashion) which has become synonymous with McLaren Vale. A kaleidoscope of multi-dimensional fruit and earthy structure radiates from the glass. Exuberant plum and red berry fruits align with enveloping, soft tannins, accented with the perfumed cedary notes derived from minimal oak, of which our Grenache has matured in. The result: A wine with structure, elegance and poise. Pretty stuff, our Peacock’s Fan!

“Minutely hazy medium dusty garnet colour. Toasty, spicy aromas and flavours of black raspberry pie al la mode, sour cherry gelato, chocolate mint cookie, and hint of eucalyptus lozenge with a satiny, bright, fruity medium body and a smooth, intriguing, medium-long spiced toffee, pomegranate and watermelon, and cedar paper finish with light oak. A nice spicy Grenache with fine balance and vibrancy.”

“Classic lifted confectionery/rub fruit fragrances with herbal- like complexity. Big mouthful of sweet raspberry jubes. Drying tannins.”
