Three generations of vignerons. Everyone born and bred in McLaren Vale.
Uniquely McLaren Vale. Grenache was the backbone of the wine industry here for over a century, producing mostly fortified wines.
These old Grenache vines have grown for over 90 years on a contoured hill, and have seen tastes change from rich, sweet fortified to this modern, aromatic, and spicy medium-bodied Grenache.
They were bush vines with their thick trunks and sprawling arms until a few years ago when they were lifted up and put on a trellis wire to keep them ripening evenly as they grow older. The soil profile is a light loam over some clay and then deep limestone. The vines are hand pruned and hand-picked for the highest quality fruit.
This wine has aromatics of raspberry and red fruits with a hint of herbs. Old vine concentration. Luscious plum flavors, complex spice, and savory fruits are underpinned by gamey tones and hints of chocolate. Delicate vanilla oak and fine tannins finish an approachable wine. Pairing with Venison, macadamia, cherry.
