"Perfect rijp fruit, aardse en hartige tonen. Electrifying! "

Waar 'The Vagabond' een blend is van drie wijngaarden is She's Electric 'Single Vineyard', een wijn afkomstig van één wijngaard, en dus per definitie meer uitgesproken van karakter. De Seaview subregio kent daarbij een rijkere bodem dan Blewitt Springs en dat wordt weerspiegeld in deze wijn, die vleziger en voller is dan The Vagabond. 2022 was het tweede jaar op rij onder invloed van La Niña en dat zorgde net als in 2021 voor een relatief koel groeiseizoen zonder extremen. Perfect rijp fruit (kers, framboos) is het resultaat en dat krijgt hier fantastisch tegenspel van aardse en hartige tonen die zorgen voor diepgang en spanning. In één woord electrifying! Er zijn slechts 1.340 (genummerde) flessen van She's Electric gebotteld dus zeggen dat de wijn schaars is mag gerust een understatement heten.


"The 2022 She's Electric Old Vine Single Vineyard Grenache features 50% whole bunches in the wild ferment, but it doesn't smell or feel more bunchy than the others, showing a sensitive approach to winemaking suited to individually fit the vineyard sites. Cool. On the nose, there is Valencia orange, raspberry coulis, cumin seeds, saffron, licorice and wet asphalt/ozone. This is gritty and savory in the mouth, more earthy than some of the others, but I do love that about it—it gives some savory yin to the sweet yang. The wine lingers in a lavender/ylang yang way, floral and petal-y. Lovely plus. (Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 95/100)

Deep, bright purple-red colour; a gently scented bouquet of raspberry and blackcurrant pastilles, fringed with subtle spices. The wine is full bodied and there are ample fine-grained tannins that impart pleasing structure and contribute to its length. A very smart grenache that will age well but can also be enjoyed young.

Dry-grown old bush vines. The norm. This time, in Seaview. Lower elevation. Reddish sandy loams littered with quartz and ironstone. This has greater concentration than the Vagabond grenache, yet without quite the detail or saveur. Damson plum and marasca cherry. Anise, thyme, menthol and lavender. A tad drying. A delicious wine of an expansive mid-palate, intensity of fruit and prodigious length, yet without the translucent pinosité and levity that marks the very best examples of grenache from the Vale.

93/100 punten
Seaview, hence. different. Rich, ironstone/ferrous thing, raspberry, cherry, hazelnut and carob, lots of flesh and tannin, fruit is more on the down low, maybe a little lacking in the mid-palate, but the earthy/choc/ferrous things are the main driver here. Still, distinctive and very good.
