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.
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.
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.
