2017 Barossa Valley Wine Show
Sourced from low yielding bush vines ranging in age from 50 to 120 years old.
Old Vine Grenache is one of the prized treasures of the Barossa and a much loved variety for Bethany Wines. The grapes for this wine are sourced from three Grenache blocks within the Schrapel family vineyards with vines aged from 50 to over 90 years old. In a spectacular vintage such as 2016, these gnarled old vines produce grapes of intensity, power and beauty and we strive to capture those qualities in this bottle. With a colour and nose redolent of dark cherries and hibiscus flowers this wine is immediately seductive. The palate has cherries, wild strawberries and dark spices that intermingle with fine grained tannins to produce a wine with a long finish of spice and cacao.
