Gorgeous Grenache No.1  2016

Grenache is Australia’s signature grape variety and we’re slightly obsessed with it. Utilising a range of premium vineyrds across South Australia, we’ve crafted a wine that captures all that is good about Grenache. Aromatic, deceptively light but with beautiful wild fruit, and slurpy, supple tannins.

 

Vintage Conditions

Winter and Spring were dry and though total volume was near normal, there were few drenches. Spring was also dry  with hot temperatures in October followed by a  milder November in which the fruit set well with good crops. Refreshing rains in late January prolonged the season more than it might have been but by early March the fruit was perfect.

 

Winemaking

Sourced from a number of vineyards in The Barossa and McLaren Vale regions of South Australia. All vineyards are vinified in small batches, separately. Wild ferments, whole bunch inclusion, larger oak and no filtration or fining define the natural character of the wine.
