The Loom range continues to be a great example of Single Vineyard wine at it's best. The concept of a field blend is always exciting, a bit of an unknown really. That's fine - we at Wine Brothers love a bit of experimental artistry.
FROM THE WINEMAKER
"I reckon a field blend should be fermented in the vineyard which it was grown. Being my vineyard and all I can confidently say this wasn’t. Also the wine to which this note is referring to is a blend of Grenache and Shiraz and with a nod to the second sentence of this at best, monologue, I’ve more than a wink and nudge assumption that there’s a shit load more planted in this vineyard than Shiraz and Grenache. Either way I’m not fussed and looking across the table immersed in reflective sound, I’m happy to indulge in whatever conceptual misdemeanours we may be subjecting you too in the spirit of an awesome glass of wine. This is certainly that, super sweet red fruits, aniseed, cinnamon and so on, and on. Brilliant to drink, easy, yet omnipresent, the type of wine I’d love to say I made… which I sort of did."
Not heavy. Something light enough to allow those lovely red fruits to shine. Mushroom risotto.
JC SCORE 8.5/10
Easy drinking, my uneducated, yet well worn, pallet tells me that this is very Grenache. Plenty of silky smoothness about this wine, easy easy easy drinking.
