Description

The stoic hero of McLaren Vale, the history and tradition of our wonderful 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

Growing Conditions

Soil profiles at Chapel Hill reached capacity early in winter and set the vines up well for a challenging season. Budburst was at the usual time and a warm, dry spring followed The conditions kept disease pressure low and reduced vine vigour and yield.
Whilst summer started out very hot, the season cooled through January. February brought welcome rain to freshen up the vines. The cool weather continued into harvest allowing fruit to be picked at optimum ripeness and plenty of time for extra care in the winery.
