Hand harvested fruit from the middle and bottom sections of our Grenache block was fermented in open vessels which were gently plunged once a day to extract soft tannins. Pressed off after a week on skins and matured in seasoned French oak for just 6 months, this early release style is perfect long lunch drinking material.
Our vineyard is on Kaurna country in the McLaren Vale subregion of Blewitt Springs. The soils are sandy, nutrient poor, and truly ancient; as old as 56 million years old. Growing season days are long and sunny, moderated by cooling sea breezes from the Gulf of St. Vincent. This site produces fruit of great concentration and fine tannin, with resulting wines that are both powerful and elegant.
This lighter bodied style of red is well suited to spicy and fresh foods. Try traditional Moroccan chermoula roasted vegetables with chickpeas and couscous.
This wine is best enjoyed within 3-5 years.
