Description

McLaren Vale Bush Vine Grenache has the most amazing pedigree and history. The region is so incredibly lucky to be blessed with these alluringly gnarly and stoic bush vines that have endured so many harsh years.
Post WWII, soldiers were allocated 10-15 acre blocks, these blocks were deemed to be sufficient for one person to manage and earn a living. These vines are an absolute treasure of the Australian wine industry and they will continue to spread the message of McLaren Vale’s passion and commitment to the wonderful world of wine.

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.
