- Ranked: #1 of 19 2018 Grenache blends from South Australia - The Real Review
In 1972, cousins Greg and Roger Trott produced a dry red wine from grapes grown on Greg’s vineyard adjacent to the small Bethany Chapel opposite Wirra Wirra. This blend of grenache and shiraz became the first ‘Church Block’. Taking on advice from friends and mentors, Trott evolved Church Block over the years to its popular signature blend of cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and merlot. Yet still there were those who bemoaned the loss of the original blend of grenache and shiraz. So at various times over the years, when the planets have aligned, we have re-created the grenache shiraz offering and released it under the imaginatively titled ‘Original Blend’ moniker. With a look and feel harking back to simpler times, this latest release of Original Blend Grenache Shiraz is limited in number, but not imagination.
Vivid crimson with a deep red hue.
Richly aromatic with black cherries, raspberries, musk stick and floral notes, as well as allspice and aniseed.
A bright and lively palate of succulent red and blue fruits with spicy notes. Medium bodied, the mouthfeel remains plush and graceful with a fine-grained, savoury finish.
- Food Pairing
Spiced lamb tagine.
