Wines by KT 2017 5452 Grenache Mataro


Kerri Thompson is probably best known for her outstanding Clare Valley rieslings but this juicy red blend offers some of the best value in her range. At four years of age, it is right in the zone with juicy fruity drinkability from two southern French grape varieties allied to some savoury notes on the palate. The former Leasingham and Wirra Wirra winemaker has blended 75% grenache and 25% mataro, 50% whole bunch and basket pressed. The fruit is the star turn with French oak barriques adding interest in the background. Smooth, concentrated and exceptional value.$29.
