Overview

This dry grown Grenache yields low volumes of fruit with very concentrated flavours. Ageing in old French oak imparts subtle flavours which integrate but never challenge the fruit.

A beautiful wine.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

The altitude of Watervale enables the Grenache vines to give a large spectrum of flavours to the fruit. This is a delicious, pretty wine. It has body and length, and lovely high notes of liquorice and leather, which are rarely found in the wines from the Barossa or McLaren Vale.

Cellaring

Lovely now, and will develop over 4 or 5 years.

Winery Profile

Fireblock (formerly Old Station Vineyard) is owned by Bill and Noel Ireland, who purchased the almost-70-year-old Watervale vineyard in 1995. The vines planted in 1926 (3ha of shiraz and 2ha of grenache) are dry-grown, the riesling (1ha) was replanted to the Geisenheim clone in 2008 when town water became available. Watervale Riesling, Old Vine Shiraz and Old Vine Grenache are skilfully contract-made, winning trophies and gold medals at capital city wine shows
