2006 Colonial Estate Alexander Laing Old Vine Grenache 柯倫萊亞歷山大萊恩老藤歌海娜
The 2006 Alexander Laing Old Vine Grenache is medium ruby-colored, the nose gives up spice aromas including cinnamon, white pepper, clove, and sage as well as black cherry and black raspberry. Silky-textured, elegant, and already showing some complexity, this tasty Grenache will perform optimally from 2010 to 2018.
The Colonial Estate is the Australian project of Englishman and Bordeaux chateau owner Jonathan Maltus. His first vintage in Australia was 2002. The entry level wines are line-priced at $30 offering excellent bang for the buck.
