"An excellent value, the deep ruby-hued 2003 Brave Faces boasts terrific fruit intensity slong with gorgeous aromas of raspberries, black currants, and cherries. Grenache's kirsh/licorice component is nicely balanced by the blacker fruit character and smokier notes of Shiraz. Drink this opulent, hedonistic, savory 2003 over the next 3-4 years."
What a difference a couple of generations can make. In the mid 1980's South Australias old Shiraz and Grenache vines were being removed due to lack of demand. These grapes were being picked early and being made into white wine. Brave Faces is a tribute to the men and women that loyally tended to their vineyards and allowed them to remain today.
