Quick Overview

A finer boned, musky and spicy expression of Grenache here. It’s medium bodied, almost strict in structure, with firm dry tannin, pitch-perfect acidity giving energy, fresh raspberry and something like black tea, or that elusive ‘mineral’ thing, a pleasant perfumed herb character as a counterpoint, and a crisp and very long finish, closing with gustatory tannin and subtle bitterness. Wow."

Product Description

Amaro amore! A bright, red cherry, boysenberry, cranberry concoction of aromas backed by a herbal, purple basil laced pallet finishing with red jelly crystals. Silky and dense, surprisingly weightier than the Old McDonald Grenache with a compactness that slowly unfurls with time in the glass. A tongue coating layer of tannin that fills all corners of the palate. Gentle and persistent. A different and very welcome energy to our other Grenaches

Grenache generally has two distinct stages of aging. The primary stage lasts for two to three years and it is all about the fresh berry fruit characters. The wine should then go through a quieter stage where the nose closes down. It is during this time the wine develops secondary bottle aged characters. This can take from three to five years and is a difficult process to predict and entirely dependent on how the wine is stored. Ultimately, and with the right cellaring conditions, this Grenache can be kept for 15 years.


"From a 62 year old vineyard in the Clarendon sub-region of McLaren Vale. I’ve not met Steve Pannell, but I’d volunteer that he’s one of the best winemakers in the country. Have been to his beautiful cellar door a few times. I keep a low profile, all things considered.
