James Suckling , 2022
The Magnet Grenache is sourced from 100 year old dry grown Grenache vines located at Dogridge vineyard in McLaren Vale. This wine is named after my second born son, who like a magnet, has the ability to attract all forces, both positive and negative, with his vibrant, energetic and magnetic personality.
The vines are low yielding but each bunch provides a concentrated array of flavours from ripe cherries to plums and blackberries. On the nose is raspberry perfume, laden with cherries and liquorice. Vibrant earth plum with hints of spice of cumin, wooden bark and chocolate round the palate and give it an unctuous mouth feel.
