‘Old Vine’ Grenache planted circa 1960 on red clay over bluestone and ironstone at 290m elevation near Greenock on the western ridge of the Barossa Valley. Classified ‘Old Vine’ ( 35 years or older ) in accordance the ‘Barossa Old Vine Charter’. The Charter was established to preserve and celebrate Barossa’s old vineyard and unique viticultural heritage.

“From a 101yo vineyard, there is a peppery, fibrous composure to this grenache, mitigating the variety’s explosive tendencies. Chiselled of slate, grenache’s liquid kirsch qualities are nevertheless on full display. These are restrained by a dollop of old vine mataro for ferruginous grip, 10% stems in the ferment and a gentle extraction regime, employing whole berries and wild yeast, before ageing in older oak for 17 months. The result is pure, unadulterated pleasure across the entire bottle.” – 97 Points & Special Value Wine Ned Goodwin for James Hallidays Wine Companion
