Region: McLaren Vale, SA
First Glance: Bright and spicy Grenache
Acclaim: 92+ Points
From three selected block of vines in McLaren Vale, within the Blewitt Springs and McLaren Flat sub-regions. Made with a small amount of whole berry fermentation to add to that sense of fresher, brighter fruit. after 12 days on skins, the wine is transferred to old French oak where it spent 6 months.
A real charmer with a lightness of touch that is very much in line with current Grenache trends in the Vale, and something that we can vey much get behind!

"Excellent grenache. It has weight but it also feels crunchy, not to mention spicy. I love grenache with a bit of crackle to it. Raspberries, sand, roasted spices and dry, brittle leaves. Excellent tannin, firm and grapey. What this grenache is is serious and smashable, at once."
