The primary focus of our Grenache hails from the sandy soils of the section of McLaren Vale known as Blewitt Springs. Gnarly old bush vines yield tight bunches of small berries with calm power, concentration and complexity.
The 2018 vintage is elegant yet serious. Its bright, red berry vibrancy with wafts of jasmine lure you in with implied playfulness, only to surprise you with something a little dark and broody... Take a sip and you’ll soon discover that despite its elegance this wine is no wallflower. Blueberries, cola and sweet spices begin to evolve, dancing on the palate as if popping in a hot pan.
Fine, silky tannins fan out, filling the mouth before finishing with a fresh and balanced acidity. This wine lingers, leaving you eager for the next sip.
Enjoy with a wild mushroom risotto, or freshly caught Garfish wrapped in vine leaf and brik pastry.
