World Class for Three Pence Halfpenny
Crayford Barossa Valley Grenache 2015
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
High quality for a modest price sums up our view of drinking well.
I know the wines of the Barossa Valley very well and Grenache of comparable quality to this Crayford sold by small producers and artisans would start at $25. Large companies of course seldom release a Grenache varietal as they deal in large volumes.
Those who enjoy this variety are specialist or enthusiasts about wine as its not a main stream variety. Interest will grow as Grenache is a natural for our warm regions and world class wines are being made every vintage as it is perfect for the Australian climate.
While it may be hard to get your head around what is happening let me affirm that chasing names and point scores will not provide satisfaction. Buying authentic country wines of Australia, which show superior features is the way forward for your drinking.
A steal at this price and 10/10 on my value for money scale.
