Idiom Grenache Tempranillo 2015
The maiden release of Idiom’s Iberian inspired blend. A dark full-bodied wine with savoury Jamon and rosemary on the nose. A unique wine with liquorice, balsamic and sweet sandalwood notes on the palate. The mineral mid-palate derived from iron-rich clay soils is supported by a long lingering finish.
