Old Vine 2022


Luckily, we have access to very small parcels of fruit from old, dry-grown, hand-pruned/picked vineyards of up to 166 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.

  • 96 Pts (Halliday)

The 2022 comes from the 2nd of the 3 La Nina vintages in a row and has a wonderful vibrancy to the core of dark fruit & prettier aromatics than the behemoths from 2019 & 2020. The rise and rise of Grenache’s popularity has taken me a little by surprise. It was only 15 years ago I started campaigning for Grenache to be Barossa’s premier variety. 

The 2019 won the ‘Halliday Grenache Challenge’. 

Tasting Notes

"Raspberry, cherry, almond, a little spice, dried rose perfume, incense and aniseed. It’s medium-bodied, fresh and red fruited,distinctly nutty with hazelnut and almond, lovely fine crunch to acidity, dense but silky emery board tannin, and a finish of impeccable length. It’s a superb expression of old vine Grenache, and so beautifully made.” 95+ Pts
Gary Walsh – The Wine Front
"The bouquet is fragrant, with exotic spices showing the way, the palate juicy, laden with purple fruits. Silky tannins simply add to the flavour." 96 Pts + 2023 Halliday TOP 100 Wines (Top 20 Reds under $40)  
James Halliday – The Wine Companion
