Old Vine 2020
Luckily, we have access to very small parcels of fruit from old, dry-grown, hand-pruned/picked vineyards of up to 160 years of age. We decided early on that making a Grenache the way Barossan families made table wines many generations ago would honour the years of back-breaking work that went into keeping the vineyards feasible and sustainable. Whole-bunch ferments, no crushing or temperature control, natural yeasts, hand-plunged and foot-trodden.
Volume (ml): 750ml
Alcohol Vol. (%): 14.5
Standard Drinks: 8.3
A worthy follow up to the now famous ‘Grenache Challenge Winner’.
From such similar years the 2020 seems to have a deeper core of darker fruit. I’ve looked at the two wines side by side a few times now and 2020 pips the 2019 for approachability too. The rise and rise of Grenache’s popularity has taken me a little by surprise!? It was only 10 years ago I started campaigning for Grenache to be Barosssa’s Premier variety. 300 dozen produced.
