The Fruit

In 2021 we had the opportunity to take a small parcel of 1947 planted Grenache from Greenock in the North West of the Barossa. The fruit was hand harvested in late March in what proved to be a near perfect growing season. A portion of 50 year old Grenache plantings from Lyndoch were blended to add fruit purity and lift.

 

Winemaking

With around 60% whole bunch, this wine went through over a month of extended maceration prior to basket pressing. Starting in a 2 year old French oak puncheon for 6 months, the wine was then moved to an old French puncheon for a further 8 months.

 

The Wine

The whole bunch component adds lovely grip, tension and baking spice. Black tea, alpine herb and earthiness sits amongst fresh raspberry and strawberry. Medium bodied, beautifully ripe fruit with a mineral/stony spine.
