Quick Overview

95 points Halliday Wine Companion: 'From bush vines planted in ‘46, 50% whole-berries, wild yeast and kept on lees in used French oak for 10 months. So fragrant it's breathtaking. To start, a whirl of perfectly ripe raspberries and red currants, patchouli and subtle Middle Eastern spices. The palate is tightly wound, with raspberry-like acidity, more pronounced tannins in the background. They'll meet up in time. Drink by 2029' (Halliday Wine Companion 2018)


93 points James Suckling: 'A savory and tangy red with hints of blueberries, meat and cloves. Medium to full body, chewy tannins, a fresh finish and citrus undertones. Drink now. Screw cap." (jamesuckling.com, July 2017)


 

Product Description

 


Robust grenache, sizeable, slathered with toasty/creamy oak and plush throughout. Grenache with the works, sure, but complex. Deli meats, spices, redcurrant and plums. Lots of oak, too much arguably, but seductive with it. Intricately tannic yet overall it remains supple. Fabulous booze, so long as oak doesn’t annoy you. It drinks beautifully now but it has a future.

Reviews


95 points Toni Patterson: 'This is one of the most exciting wines I have tried in a long time. Wildly intense with bright maraschino cherry aromas and flavours. The palate is young, taut and tactile with cherry pip vibrancy and shimmering spice. The barely perceptible savouriness gives the wine depth and character. Highly recommended.' (The Real Review, September 2017)

90 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "Pale to medium garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Grenache Old Vine has scents of cherry and strawberry preserves with hints of potpourri, baking spices, aniseed and dusty earth. Medium-bodied and packed with red berry coulis and spicy flavors, it has a solid frame of chewy tannins and a racy line carrying the fruit to a long finish." (The Wine Advocate, South Australia Report, August 2017)
