2021 Bink Big Little Red
Carignan is from Blewit springs, McLaren Vale. Grafted 9 years ago on syrah. The colder and wetter climate in Blewitt springs really plays to the advantage of the carignan. Good crop load in 2021, together with a almost perfect growing season, made the carignan really push out it's best. Plush fruit in nose, very extrovert raspberry and cherry aroma's. together with soft spice. Hints a muddled red/black fruit, really sets the tone for a juicy and plush mouth feel. Like cutting a Christmas cake with a hot knife and a touch of butter still on the knife.
Where: McLaren Vale, SA
How: The biggest reds Koen’s done to date. Roast pork comes to mind, but so does duck.
