Sourced from a network of vineyards located around the perimeter of Barossa Valley, the vine ages range from 25 to 65 years, and are grown on a range of soil types. Those grown on the sandy loams in the South, tend to drive savoury spice characters, while the dark clays in the North often drives brighter red fruits.
All Grenache batches are fermented in open fermenters, where the presence of whole berries are encouraged. Pumped over twice daily, flavours colours and tannins are gently extracted from the grapes until pressing off skins after 7 days. Each parcel is maintained separate and is racked into a blend of older French HogsHeads for 12 months prior to careful blending.
A wonderfully juicy and bright Grenache! The wine is only just medium bodied, which, when combined with the bright acidity and the complex but fresh aromatic makes it such a refreshing and enjoyable drink that can be enjoyed with almost any food!
