Quick Overview

"What can’t Adelina do? This comes from 90-year-old vines. Modest time on skins.
It’s not a great way to start a review of grenache, but it fits: distinct ‘pinosity’ here. Light, lithe, fine and svelte. Gossamer web of pomegranate, light spice, rose hip tea character. Fine tannins stretch from mid palate through to a fan of light chew. It’s really pretty, but also shows some assertive nature too. Bitter in that totally pleasing way. This is superb. Understated yet has so much to say.

Rated : 95 Points Winefront.com.au    

Product Description

Even as avid fans of this wine, we think it has really hit its straps in recent vintages. When you know the story behind the wine, the sublime quality starts to make sense; it's grown in a tiny, old-vine two-acre parcel a stone's throw from the iconic Wendouree vineyard and takes its muse from Emmanuel Reynaud's legendary Château Rayas.

Sourced from the Estate's two-acre (0.8-hectare) Springvale block of vines, planted in 1942, where the very old, desiccated grey loams and maturity of the vines means yields are naturally low. As for the winemaking specs, Col notes, 50 days on skins, fermented indigenously in closed concrete tank. Pressed/ settled for several days and racked to barrel for malo (neutral French barrique). Racked once post malo and then returned to oak, bottled after 10 months.
