It’s always a pleasure to drink Tom Shobbrook’s wines. They are lively and friendly, much like Tom himself, and forever generous in fruit and savoury character. This Grenache is no exception. There is plenty of bunchiness, both nasally and texturally, throughout the wine to counteract the slick nature of the blue fruits. A little lighter in body than one is use to seeing from the Barossa, but this is a new era for the region and Shobbrook is one of the ringleaders.
