Lourens Lua Ilse Grenache Noir 2020


The only remotely negative thing I have to say about this superb, focused, beautifully delineated Grenache is that the production is too small, at just 790 bottles. Pure, perfumed and very lightly wooded, it has plenty of depth and structure, with plum, red berry and Turkish Delight notes and a savoury, mineral finish. 2023-29 95/100 Tim Atkin MW
