Quick Overview

…triumph!! ...clean cut of acidity, and a long silky finish strapped up with a little new leather. Succulent and lively at once. Tasty stuff." 93 points Winefront.com.au


Wine Selectors Magazine, Australia..... The palate has juicy layers of plum and black cherry fruit with supple candied confectionary varietals. The tannins are super soft and velvety with mouth-watering acidity driving a long finish. An absolutely beautiful Grenache awarded Gold by all panel members.


 

Product Description

The Blewitt Springs fruit was hand picked, gently crushed to retain whole berries and then cold soaked for 5 days prior to fermentation. Twice daily hand plunging during fermentation was followed by gentle pressing before running to 500 litre puncheons.


20% new French oak was used, with the balance being made up of used French. A savage selection was made after 6 months ageing with the selection exhibiting pure, lifted raspberry and savoury strawberry fruit couped with subtle spices and a creamy texture. The overwhelming impression is of lightness, lift and purity with hints of dried citrus, spice and cherry. Not for nothing is Grenache known as the Pinot of the South!


"From a vineyard in Blewitt Springs, with a vine age of something like 70 years. Realised I should have reviewed these some time ago (promises, promises) and went on a mad hunt under the house for it. Some spiders (one dead, one alive), a few mozzies, and a bumped head later…triumph!!


Raspberry frogs, dried roses, aniseed and spice. Medium bodied, juicy and packed with red fruits, light glycerol texture and fine powdery tannin, clean cut of acidity, and a long silky finish strapped up with a little new leather. Succulent and lively at once. Tasty stuff." 93 points Winefront.com.au

"A deliciously luscious and supple wine, this Grenache opens with vibrant, dark cherry red and earthy dark berry fruit, bramble and complex floral  notes on the nose. The palate has juicy layers of plum and black cherry fruit with supple candied confectionary varietals. The tannins are super soft and velvety with mouth-watering acidity driving a long finish. An absolutely beautiful Grenache awarded Gold by all panel members.
