2017 Barrel Ferment Grenache
This Grenache is made using fruit sourced from a single
site in Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale. Made using a
unique small batch wine making technique to produce
a wine of difference and expression.
Showing intense varietal character a rounder fuller mid
palate and a soft long supple finish
The fruit was crushed straight to a puncheon with its
head removed. It went through alcoholic fermentation
in oak on skins. The head was then replaced and the
wine, skins and all were left to complete MLF and
mature for 156 days before pressing and the same
barrel refilled for maturation.
The wine has ripe red berry fruit aromas of raspberry,
strawberry, red plum and cherry and hints of white
The palate is soft and round with medium to body,
intense fruit flavours of strawberry compote, red plums
and raspberry red cherry. The finish is long and soft
with sweet red fruits and white pepper carrying
through on savoury fine tannin.
