2022 Kin Grenache Magnum
What a fantastic year for Grenache! This bolts out of the glass with lifted fresh and dried flower aromas, as well as red cherry and strawberry. Fruit has a cool, savoury, almost mineral aspect and the chalky tannins are perfectly enmeshed in the wine.

"NASAA certified organic and biodynamic grenache from blocks 18 and 22 on the Alkina Greenock estate, 100% whole bunches, basket pressed into concrete and a small portion into stainless steel for 6 months. Vibrant, perfumed and just a joy to drink with pretty red cherry and plum fruits bound with ginger spice, purple florals, red licorice and earth. Light and airy with chewy tannin grip, bright acidity and a savoury swish on the exit."

"Medium full red with a good tint of purple and a most attractive bouquet of smoked spices, raspberry/black cherry, and a char/earthy/ironstone background. The wine is medium bodied and very approachable young yet has enough grip and structure to take some age, and to accompany quite hearty foods. Delicious wine, with a sweet-fruit core and a lovely balance between intensity and lightness of being. Grenache charm writ large. It rings my bells and is great value."
