A bright and refreshing expression of McLaren Vale Grenache. Light and bright. Loads of red summer berries. Some whole bunch characters shine through, highlighting the perfume and adding complexity. Soft tannin give rise to a lingering finish. Dry grown Grenache grown in Whites Valley in McLaren Vale, hand-picked, de-stemmed and wild fermented in open ferment for 11 days. Approximately 20% underwent whole bunch fermentation. Carefully selected seasoned French oak was used to mature and integrate for 10 months. Bottled unfiltered and un-fined.Awards:
“Since the fruit comes off 73 yo vines, it is simply allowed to shine, unfettered by heavy-handed wine-making. Heady with musk and red berries, there's a delicacy across the palate with lovely grainy tannins and lively acidity. A satisfying, gorgeous drink. Drink by 2028.” 95 points, Halliday rating.
