Lourens Family Wines Howard John 2020


“The best I can do for my old man,” says Franco Lourens of this medley of Grenache with 56% Cinsault and Syrah, which features a drawing of his dad on the label. Juicy, refreshing yet serious, it has subtle whole bunch perfume, liquorice and ginger notes and a core of stony plum, raspberry and red cherry fruit. 2022-28 93/100 Tim Atkin MW
