Waverley Hills Grenache 2015
By Christian Eedes, 12 August 2016
The Grenache 2015 from Tulbagh organic wine producer Waverley Hills makes for great everyday drinking. From bush vines yielding three tons a hectare, maturation lasted nine months in third-fill 500-litre barrels. The nose shows red cherries, floral perfume and spice while the palate is medium bodied with very fresh (some might say “spiky”) acidity. Not super-intense in terms of aroma or flavour but true to the emerging style we are seeing locally. And at R100 a bottle from the cellar, it won’t break the bank.
