Sourced from several Grenache vineyards across South Australia, including some of the region’s most iconic sites, Gorgeous Grenache displays a beautifully perfumed nose with hints of violets and wild strawberry. The palate is succulent, juicy and Pinot-like in its profile while the finish is savoury and moreish.

  • A variety of vinification techniques are used with the various wines blended
    closer to bottling. The Blewitt Springs portion is wild fermented, 30%
    whole bunches in a layered ferment in a concrete egg. No mechanical
    extraction was used. The Clarendon portion was wild fermented using early
    hand-picked fruit. 25% whole bunches, gentle hand plunging twice daily,
    extended tine on skins. Pressed to older oak. Riverland portion was whole
    berry fermented to retain freshness and bright fruit character. Gently
    extracted and pressed to older oak. 10% of wine spends 5 months in older
    French oak.
