Deep dark red colour with black tinged edges and a dark red hue. Intense dark to black raspberry aromas intermingle with dark plum and liquorice followed by vanillin confectionary and spice. Rich, voluptuous in texture and exceptionally long in the mouth, this is one powerful Grenache. Succulent black raspberry flavours dominate over liquorice and ripe black cherries. There’s an echo of vanillin confectionary on the finish and loads of spice. Bright acidity with firm yet balanced tannins providing a robust framework. Very long conclusion of black raspberries, liquorice, vanillin confectionary and spicy pepper.
95 Point Rated - Erin Larkin Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2020 Domaine Clarendon Grenache is saturated with blood, salted raspberry, licorice and fennel seeds. The supple and elegant fruit is stretched over a framework of very fine but firm tannins. This is awesome: structure, shape, drive, savory tannins and length of flavor. It has grunt and some amaro and alpine herbs. Very smart.

"This has a very fresh and vibrant feel with such intense raspberry and red plum as well as blood orange and rust. Really savory and distinctive. The palate has such succulent acidity and a piercing red and dark berry-plum core. Long supple tannins. Well defined with plenty of structure. Excellent value. Drink over the next decade."
93+ Point Rated - Gary Walsh The Wine Front
"Good things happening here. Plum, blue and red fruit, meaty, yet perfumed. Juicy blood plum, fine ferrous tannin grip, savoury and a little spicy, really impressive texture, with hazelnut and blood orange acidity, firm and dry to close, umami and potpourri carry on a long gravelly finish. Really good."
The 2020 Domaine Clarendon Grenache offers an insight to the Grenache stable of Clarendon Hills. In what is the earliest ever release of Clarendon Hills Grenache, this 2020 vintage release offers passionate Grenache enthusiasts to witness these wines where flavours and acids are at an unparalleled intensity. Offering an abundance of fresh cut flowers like violet and roses, there’s red cherry, blood orange and raspberry like characters throughout the bright acidity on the palate that illuminates the fruit for all to see. The tannin is like fine talcum and the flavours are at a full 10/10 at this stage of relative infancy. Experience charm of the exceptional 2020 vintage in this latest edition of the Domaine Clarendon Grenache.
