Our Price: $26.99 / bottle
(RRP $35.00)

Case: 6 bottles

Produced exclusively from our Estate bush vines planted in 1946 high on our Estate’s deep sandy soils. Our Old Vine Grenache is complex, perfumed and elegant with a trademark tannin structure.

  • The fruit for this wine was sourced from blocks 23, 24, 25 and 29. These are
    dry-farmed bush vines that were planted in 1946, in our ancient sands that
    overlie the North Maslin geology. The grapes were hand-picked, destemmed
    and mechanically sorted. 50% whole berries. The berries were then tipped
    in to open fermenters, cold-soaked for 5-6 days and underwent wild yeast
    fermentation. No pressings were used. The wine in barrel was kept on lees
    in older French oak for 10 months. Not fined. Certified Organic/Biodynamic.

    The beauty of redcurrant and liquorice. The woody spice notes, splashed generously about. The tannin, firm and fine but commanding. Whole bunch influences are sensed as the fruit gushes through. I don’t really need to go on. This is a tip top terrific grenache, without a shadow of a doubt. 94+ Points.

    Matured for 10 months in used French oak. Very good colour; rich, full predominantly red fruits supported by fine tannins. No hint at all of confection or jam. The finish simply reinforces the depth and the freshness of the fruit from 70yo vines. Bargain.
