Why do we love this wine?

What’s a ‘vin de soif’? Well literally it’s a ‘wine of thirst’. A quaffer, then. A fun, delicious, easy-drinking wine. This wine is that, but not only!

I think they were having a bit of fun with the name. It’s certainly easy drinking, and that grenache gives all the juicy fruit you could want, but it’s at risk of sounding a bit throwaway. Delicious, yes, but also well made and interesting. 

It’s a light, clear crimson with beautiful summery fragrance in the glass. Then on the palate it’s a bit like eating berries straight off the bush. There’s lovely ripeness, a tart acid, and savoury leafy brambly notes. Raspberries, cherries, redcurrants and tomato leaf. Finally faint chinotto-like bitter orange and softly fizzing tannin. It’s an unusually restrained and elegant style for the Barossa, showing real craft and intent. Quaff it all you like, but don’t you dare write it off!
