Was it last Friday or the Friday before? It matters not; Grenache Day was a damn decent excuse to open a bottle. Hundreds around the globe did likewise. In Scribblings Towers it happened to be a rather fine rendition of the grape from Australia – d’Arenberg The Derelict Vineyard, 2009, McLaren Vale. [Adegga / Snooth].

My Grenache Day WineDemon tasting note read “Ripe with deliciously full sweet fruit up front, very aussie. Juicy finish with a grand tannic splurge . Those tannins are quite gravelly texture wise adding much interest to those juicy black fruit flavours.”

d’Arenberg The Derelict Vineyard Grenache 2009 – the latest in the regular Sunday Wine Snapshots series highlighting photographs with a wine related theme, whether bottles, glasses, vineyards or the back scenes of wineries.
