Crafted from two unique McLaren Vale vineyards as our celebration of Grenache.
70%: 1947 planted Grenache bush vines growing in deep sand just north of the McLaren Vale township. Fruit is hand-picked and destemmed to open fermenters. Pumped over and cooled regularly to maintain a steady fermentation on skins for 6 days, capturing the perfumed elegance of this block. Matured in tank and well-seasoned French oak for 7 months prior to blending.
30%: 1990 planted, single-wire trellised vines, growing on the sandy slopes of Stump Hill on the western edge of the McLaren Vale township. Pumped over and fermented warmer to maintain a steady fermentation on skins for 8 days, capturing the darker fruit and textured structural elements of this block. Matured in well-seasoned oak for 7 months.
