In Praise of Shadows, l’Ombre Grenache/Mataro/Shiraz 2020

‘Minimal intervention’ and ‘lo-fi’ winemaking are the buzzwords here. The winery name references the idea that beauty lies not in the thing itself but in the play of light and shadow. The colour is not dark but bright and vibrant, the aroma very ripe and sweet, fruit-driven, with a note of raspberry jam. The taste is likewise succulent and smoothly textured. An opulent wine that would have wide appeal.
