The new faces behind the Curtis Family Vineyards are Mark, Thomas & Jenna Curtis, with the guidance of their father, Claudio Curtis who lives on the vineyard just outside McLaren Vale. The name Curtis is thought to derive from Curtius, a noble and wealthy family of the First and Second Centuries AD, the Roman Empire era originating from the Latinium people. 

Another very fine Grenache, this one from ancient dry grown bush vines which are around 125 years old. Good luck finding that in the Rhône! A vibrant crimson, the nose is utterly seductive. We have seen so many wonderful Grenache wines in recent years that anyone not yet converted to the glories of this grape is just being contrarian, and this is another example. Tobacco leaf aromas, raspberries, new leather and freshly turned earth, it has seriously good intensity and yet remains rather elegant with more cherry notes on the palate. A silky finish but there is deceptive grip. A fine line of acidity also runs the length and the balance is excellent. This has ten years ahead of it and the score should continue to rise over that time. An alluring McLaren Vale Grenache.

McLaren Vale is a region that suites Grenache so well with its natural plumpness and vibrant fruit. And there’s a lot to like about this example. On the nose you are immediately struck with a mix of cherry, spicy plum and a little dark chocolate. The palate is exquisite with a sort of liqueur cherry character pervading – it is thoroughly delicious.

Its wonderfully ripe and seductively complex, showing dark berry, cedar, anise, thyme and subtle cocoa notes on the nose. The impressively concentrated palate offers expansive mouthfeel and silky flow, back by loads of fine-grained tannins. Multi-layered and gratifying. At its best: At its best: now to 2035.
