R Wines Southern Gothic Poor Thing Grenache 2008


Winemaker's Notes

Poor Thing is classic Barossa Grenache made to be expressive, complex, yet understated and hospitable in your mouth.
A bright ruby red color. Aromas of cloves and nutmeg combined with toffee and caramel. The sweet palate of blueberry jam, fruitcake and quince paste.

The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Poor Thing Grenache spent 16 months in neutral French and American oak. Dark ruby colored, it sports an already complex nose of damp earth, underbrush, garrigue, raspberry and kirsch. Intense, concentrated, and seamless on the palate, it will deliver enjoyment for another 8 years.
