RATED 96 POINTS BY NICK BUTLER – THE REAL REVIEW

Raspberries and cranberries… soft oak-spice and aniseed. As pure and bright… Perfectly ripe and seriously delicious.”

92 POINT 2021 JAMES HALLIDAY WINE COMPANION

Violet and molten raspberry to cherry bonbon scents. I like this Grenache for its fully flared density, as opposed to the tutti-frutti lolly water scents and soft frame of so many. It could do with a bit more grip, but fine drunk on the cooler side.

Great drinking now and for the next 5-10 years

TASTING NOTES

From old bush vines at our Watunga Road Vineyard, this wine is proof, if any were needed, that Grenache and the Barossa were made for each other. Packed with juicy red berry fruits, it has a savoury edge, generous mouthfeel and smooth tannin.

SEASON

After being hit by spring frost the vineyard bounced back, albeit with diminished yields. January and February were dry and warm and some hot patches in February put the brakes on ripening. Milder warm weather continued into autumn, allowing good hang time, and our Grenache was harvested in early April with excellent flavours.

WINEMAKING

This wine is from old bush vines at our Watunga Road Vineyard in the heart of the Barossa Valley. The fruit was handpicked and fermented in open fermenters with hand plunging. A small portion was fermented in whole bunches to capture heightened fruit aromas and flavours. The wine was aged in French oak barrels, mostly old so as not to overpower the juicy fruit we love in this wine.
