Product Details

The 2021 vintage was mild in every manner, mainly due to La Nina. Grenache did not achieve high sugars like the previous three vintages and this has given us the opportunity to make a straight varietal HEAD RED Grenache (well almost).
The first vineyard was planted in 1970 on the Biscay soils of Bethany. It is spur pruned, shoot-thinned and bunch-thinned for quality. The second vineyard is 1968 planted bush-vines from Nuriootpa on red-clay over sand.Both are hand picked and we ferment with about 10% whole bunches. 9 months in French hogsheads and a splash of 1968 planted Mataro make this wine utterly delicious and ready for immediate consumption.

Tasting Notes

Deep crimson red in colour with notes of raspberry, red liquorice, dusty earthen spices and wild herbs. The palate has sweet red fruits with delicate tannins and a gentle acid presence.
