The Vagabond Old Vine Grenache, Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale 2017
‘From old bushvines at Blewitt Springs, matured in a concrete egg and French puncheons (10% new). Ah, take one look at the crystal clear crimson hue and you’ll know the wine comes from old vines in McLaren Vale. What is truly remarkable is the way the wine has soaked up the new French oak without raising a sweat. This is lovely.’ Screwcap. 14.5% alc. To: 2037.

The Vagabond, Blewitt Springs Grenache 2017, McLaren Vale
''Old vines in Blewitt Springs. 200 dozen made.
A bit of liquorice, raspberry, thyme, a little spice. Juicy, expressive and lively, dry and grainy tannin, freshness, good length, perfumed dried herb finish, and a dry one at that too. Fine Grenache here.'
