Hailing from 100+ year old vines and made with minimalistic techniques to truly allow the distinguished fruit to shine. Fermented with 50% whole bunches, the juice was hand plunged twice daily for one week before being pressed to a large French oak foudre where it aged on lees for 10 months pure expression of Barossa Grenache at its finest. No fining or filtration was used on this wine.
Carefully nurtured from bud to bottle, these wines are handcrafted with passion and precision, resulting in a true reflection of region and variety. This Grenache is sophisticated, embodying complex, textural qualities.
Another great year as we had a beautiful winter with plenty of rainfall, which meant a healthy and vibrant growing season. Hailstorms at the beginning of vintage caused damages to our vineyard, resulting in lowered grape yields than previous years, however the quality of the fruit was not affected. The cooler temperatures throughout the vintage made it ideal for whites. While the cooler temperature created a much longer vintage, with reds being harvested in May, by letting the fruit develop on the vines for longer, we’re seeing beautiful flavours with a lot of depths and concentration. This has undoubtedly created some stunning and elegant wines
