2013 Grenache - Barossa Valley.

100% Grenache - Barossa Valley. Alc. 14%   FIRST RELEASE

This wine is inspired by the great wines of Chateauneuf du Pape in the Rhone Valley. The fruit is handpicked from two vineyards in the Barossa Valley, both approximately 80 years of age.

It has been hand-made using old world winemaking techniques including whole bunch fermentation, warm ferment temperatures, and aging on yeast lees in French oak barrels with no fining or filtration.

The fruit was picked slightly earlier to avoid the cloying sweetness that Grenache can sometimes get, and to retain natural acidity.

The wine shows brooding aromas of strawberry fruit, cumin seed and some orange peel. The palate is medium bodied, with a nice ‘spike’ of fruit extract backed by grape and stalk derived tannin.

Find a good Italian butcher to put together a  selection of antipasto and invite your friends around...see if they can go home after just one bottle!
