Description

The unsung hero of McLaren Vale, the history and tradition of our region can be enjoyed with a glass of this wine that is crafted from old bush vine Grenache. These old, low yielding vines result in small berries, thick skins and open bunches which deliver bright fruit flavours and an invigorating rustic savoury texture.

Winemaking Notes

Each vineyard parcel was hand harvested and then fermented separately in open fermenters to facilitate a long slow gentle extraction. After basket pressing the free run and pressing fractions were combined together. The wine was coarsely racked and aged in French Oak Puncheons to encourage complexity, mouth feel and tannin integration whilst still preserving the varietal purity. To preserve purity and character, the wine is unfined, doesn’t have any tannin additions and is bottled unfiltered.

Growing Conditions

Above average winter rainfall was followed by a cold, wet and windy spring. A dry, and relatively warm, February to mid-April allowed for even ripening and optimal development of flavour. The resultant wines are vibrant and fresh with great natural acidity
