A textbook Grenache but without any preservatives which means it’s imbued with vibrant fruit flavours and a sense of vitality on the palate. The nose kicks off with freshly picked red fruits and slight earthiness. The palate delivers a wave of raspberry and gentle spice notes complemented by a soft palate weight that makes it eminently drinkable. There’s a brisk acidity on the finish making for a great medium weighted wine that’s suited to a variety of meat dishes.
The Hero of Zero wines are hand-crafted from the best quality fruit sourced from premium vineyards across South Australia, including McLaren Vale and the Barossa. With meticulous handling in the vineyard and winery, the pristine fruit will have less exposure to anything harmful that may normally require the addition of preservatives. Our wines are crafted to be brightly coloured, exotically fragrant, full-flavoured and critically, they sing without the addition of preservatives. Perfectly suited to many cuisines, these wines are also crafted to ensure they are suitable for Vegans.

Winemaking:
Healthy and problem free fruit is selected in the vineyard and then picked in the cool of the night and then rushed to the nearby winery for a fast and focused vinification. Fermentation is cool in a closed static fermenter before a short maturation on lees and bottling.

2021 Vintage:
If 2020 was all about the heat, then 2021 will be remembered as the wet season. In many parts of Australia it was unseasonably wet but not at critical times as to do damage to the growing season and the ripeness of the grapes. In fact an even ripening was achieved between dry and rainy spells and the ensuing fruit quality was excellent and for once yields were up making 2021 a bumper harvest.
