Grenache Old Vine
This product is sold out
From vines planted in sandy soils in 1946. Light to mid cherry red. Savoury nose with some herbs. Definitely lighter (and tarter) than the average Australian Grenache. Still a bit chewy. There's a seductive leanness here with a dry finish and a wine that is certainly trying to be different - without a silly price tag. Still very youthful but potentially very interesting - especially to serve blind! 13.5%
"Light but bright and clear crimson-purple; some estate-owned vineyards were able to rise above the challenges of the vintage, and some winemakers sorted the grapes berry by berry in the winery to achieve results such as this - a highly aromatic and pure red-berried wine, with supple mouthfeel and no hint of green fruit."
