The Custodian Grenache 2005, McLaren Vale

I have a wine tasting to go to tonight, but I haven't even blog about the 80 somewhat bottles of wine from the November and December wine tastings.

McLaren Vale is great for producing grapes that needed a lot of heat and sun. This Grenache is a little on the rough side with big flavours and characters, but not a lot of elegance, which is pretty stereotypical of Australian wines. It has a lot of tannin and acid for a grenache, making it hard to drink on its own, but I bet it would be lovely with a leg of lamb.

This is a great wine to start someone on wine tasting.
