This is a stunning example of timeless McLaren Vale heritage. Ancient bush vines have produced a wine with great intensity, flavour and structure. It captures the essence of delicious gourmet delicacies and generous country charm with genuine rustic honesty.
With the right cellaring conditions Grenache will age gracefully over many years however there is great enjoyment to be had from the moment it is first released. The combination of fruit intensity and rustic warmth make it a genuine all rounder.

Winery Tasting Notes
The appearance is medium intensity and the colour is deep rose petal red with hints of crimson and cherry red on the rim.
The bouquet opens with intense red currant and cranberry fruit. There’s an elegant floral scent followed by cedar wood, exotic earthy spices and smoked meats. It’s rich and enticing with a sophisticated edge.
Grenache is often referred to as “Poor man’s Pinot Noir” so no surprise that that it has a similar body weight and flavour profile. This wine has elegant fruit, medium to full body with delicious savoury notes and rustic earthy characters on the back palate. Oak is subtle and well handled delivering a fresh lively finish.
Grenache is enjoying a well deserved revival as a wonderful food friendly wine of great charisma and appeal. It’s a natural choice with any Mediterranean style cuisine and is perfect with marinated lean lamb chops char grilled on the BBQ.
