Barossa 100% Old Vine Grenache
Vineyard: This is bare Barossa beauty. The grower, Kevin Schild, is the custodian of the 83 year-old Grenache vines.
Season: Exceptional quality was achieved from the 2019 vintage but extremely limited quantities produced; due to the low rainfall. Frost disrupted the first vine buds in spring and throughout flowering which again reduced overall grape supply. A dry ripening through summer kept disease pressure to a minimum.
Winemaking: Handpicked old vine Grenache grapes were gently pressed and fermented on skins with 27% whole bunch fermentation. Seasoned in new French oak barriques before bottled as an unfiltered and unfined red wine.
Appearance: Bright red colour with a light crimson hue.
Aroma/Bouquet: Fragrant aromatics of spicy dark raspberries, ripe red cherries and a faint note of liquorice, followed by confectionary.
Palate: Delicious flavours of ripe dark raspberries, plums and red liquorice decorate the palate giving it a juicy mouth feel. Underpinning this vibrant fruit are notions of confectionery with a spicy bright finish. Velvet smooth with perfect interwoven tannin, succulent, slightly spicy and simply delicious.
Food Pairing: Asian, Vegan cuisine, Cheese plates, Pasta dishes etc..
Residual Sugar: NA
Production: 473 dozen (750ml)
Vegan Friendly: 100%
Cellar potential: now - 8 years.
