Grenache comes from 30 year old Swan Valley vines and here becomes a pet nat. The fruit is picked and selected for pet nat too, not as an after thought. New project from Garth Cliff, a senior Houghton winemaker.
This is real good. Blistering acidity through a sluice of just ripe cherry/sour cherry tang, with cranberry juice and its associated chalkiness punching through the finish. Elements of farmhouse cider here too. It’s got lots going on with deliciousness and freshness its key selling points. Pops out of the glass. It’s great. - www.winefront.com.au
