McLaren Vale Grenache
Vineyard: Cutting edge viticulture teamed with exceptional wine making has delivered a superb wine from the South Australian McLaren Vale region. The vineyard is constantly monitored and managed to deliver premium grapes.
Season: The growing season kicked off to a good but slightly drier start than previous years. This followed into summer proving challenging with overall fruit production quantities. Frost and disease pressure was low, with a few damaging hail storms causing slight scaring on the wine grapes. January to February recorded some extreme hot temperatures which enabled a generous ripening, with small grape bunches reaching maximum concentration and flavour.
Winemaking: Hand picked fruit was carefully sorted before gentle pressing into open fermenters. Basket pressed and matured in French oak barriques from bespoke coopers.
Appearance: Clean dark purple, with hints of deep dark red.
Aroma/Bouquet: Lifted aromatics of cherries and delicate confectionery. The red colour is vibrant with plush ripe red berry fruits. Hints of black pepper with musk nuances and earthy, exotic aromas in the background.
Palate: Plush, generous and very mouth filling. The acidity and tannin dance around a mixture of red fruits to leave a delicate finish.
Food Pairing: Char-grilled Chorizo and white bean stew, Antipasto, Italian cuisine, just to name a few.
Residual Sugar: NA
Cellar potential: 7+ years
