This has an attractively rich and assertive feel with plenty of raspberries on offer, delivered in a very succulent, fresh and approachable mode. Screw cap.

Winemaker Notes

Grenache has long been held in high esteem by Barossa winemakers. Despite being criminally overlooked elsewhere due to a workhorse history, it has hidden depths and excellent potential. Like a Rough Diamond which is quite ordinary at first glance, its real beauty as a jewel is only revealed through the cutting and polishing process.

The vineyard for this Grenache is located in Eden Valley which is in the Barossa Valley.

The vines that produce this Grenache are 47 – 100 years old.

The soils here consist of deep sand over red clay and iron stone.

 

Light to medium depth crimson with purple hues. Lifted black cherry, raspberry and rose blossom with hints of sweet spice and white pepper. Sweet, juicy fruit flows over the palate which is light to medium bodied.  The red berries are balanced nicely with brambly and peppered spice and soft yet drying tannins which continue through the long and fruitful finish.
