Snake + Herring At First Sight Grenache 2020 12.5% 750ml

Expert Review: 
Erin Larkin- 94 pointsFruit from Frankland River. Hand picked from 2 blocks; the 1st (70% of the blend) underwent carbonic maceration, the 2nd is picked slightly later, 10% whole bunch. Blended post-ferment to 500L puncheons for 4 months. Definitely stemmy and definitely crunchy, possessed of brilliant flavour and colour intensity. A slight little wine, defined in part by very fine, chalky tannins. The fruit has a way of permeating the palate from front to back and hooking in another sip. Yes.

The Snake + Herring brand is a wine safari searching for remarkable grapes from West Australian Vineyards. The Search has begun, and our grape balloon manned by Snake (our winemaker) and Herring (our navigator) represent this. The southwest of WA is a viticultural treasure map as there are vineyard jewels scattered throughout. We seek for blocks within vineyards that really shine; they may seem dull when diluted by the bordering lesser dirt. The search is to find and polish these often overlooked gems and present a treasure chest of different jewels: pristine, crystalline Rieslings; crisp, radiant, multi-faceted Chardonnays; alluring, perfumed Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon; dark, exotic, hedonistic Shiraz; brilliant, regal displays of Cabernets and blends.
