(2022) David & Nadia are Swartland stars, nurturing low yielding old vineyards to create some excellent wines. Nadia is a soil scientist who understands their vineyards intimately. This Grenache, with a modest 13% alcohol, has a pale and translucent colour, and a rather Pinot-like nose, gently mushroomy and gamy, but with such a lovely fragrance. Floral and small red berry fruit notes are to the fore. Juicy and buoyant on the palate, theres no shortage of sweet, pulpy red berries, a delicate coffeeish underpinning and refined, unagressive tannins and acids supporting rather than dominating the finish.
