VANGUARDIST WINES - MEET THE MAKER - MICHAEL J CORBET

Updated: Aug 10


After Gary Walsh’s 97 point score on Michael’s s latest Grenache release, I thought I would give him a buzz to see if all this attention had gone to his head yet.

The Vanguardist 2019 Grenache review from Gray Walsh (The Wine Front) below


Blewitt Springs, and the lowest crop in 50 years, says winemaker and extra on Vikings, Michael Corbett. A little more whole bunch this year, and elevage for 14 months in 2200L Slavonian caskes, from Italy, being a new thing.

This is a superb wine. It’s fresh and distinctly mineral, yet deep and concentrated. So alive. So light on its feet. It has fresh raspberry and cherry flavour, dried rose perfume, a little spice and almond. The tannin sweeps and grips, but feels almost playful. Finish is so long, bright and packed with firm graphite tannin. It’s bloody McLaren Vale G. Mascarello. I can’t believe what I’m tasting’.


Rated : 97 Points


For the lucky few who get onto this early enough, we have a very limited amount of 2019 V Grenache available here
