Jasper Hill Cornella Grenache 2005
Grenache from Victoria, Australia
Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
After debuting with the fantastic 2004, this one exhibits even more of the classic raspberry notes of grenache, followed by luxurious fruit and earthiness; a fabulous follow-up with probably superior longevity to the '04.
"Brilliant light purple-red; lovely grenache, succulent and round, with spice and raspberry flavours; fine tannins, long finish."
Australian Wine Companion
"The 2005 Grenache "Cornelia Vineyard" was aged in 20% new oak. It is purple-colored, with a fragrant perfume of intense cherries, kirsch, and chocolate. Supple and suave on the palate, it has gobs of spicy, earthy, black cherry fruit, excellent depth, and a long, pure finish. Drink it over the next 8-10 years.
The Wine Advocate
"Deep ruby. Sexy, pure, expansive aromas of raspberry pastry, cinnamon and minerals. Lush, velvety and sweet, with intense raspberry and strawberry liqueur flavors complemented by gentle oak spice . Sweet red fruits dominate the impressively long, silky finish. I find this irresistible."
