Region: Barossa Valley Grapes: Grenache First Glance: Juicy, Fresh, Restrained, Food-friendly
The Wine: Sourced from vineyards located around the perimeter of almost the entire Barossa Valley! The increasing elevations of many of these locations brings cooler nights and impacts the grapes to enhance bright acidities and freshness with supporting but not intrusive tannin.
The quality of the Grenache was excellent from the 2022 vintage, with the wines displaying a wonderful aromatic quality, with vibrant and lifted fruit flavours. Windy conditions at flowering tempered fruit set on the Grenache, balancing the crop potential following the excellent winter and early spring rainfall. Relatively modest yields and sound ripening conditions allowed us to pick when required to ensure the fruit retained a brilliant vitality and freshness, without being over ripe.
As a result, this wine is only just medium bodied, which, when combined with the bright acidity and the complex but fresh aromatic makes it such a refreshing and enjoyable drink that can be enjoyed with almost any food!
