2014 Duke Reserve Grenache


Very much a sentimental favourite, the Duke is carefully blended from two single Grenache vineyards in Watervale, aged 72 and 78 years respectively. Both vineyards dry farmed, hand pruned and hand harvested.
  • Winemaking

    From each hand-picked parcel arriving at the winery, to the small open topped fermenters that were used, to the basket pressing to three to six-year-old seasoned French oak hogsheads, traditional vilification processes have been followed, hardly changed over many generations of winemaking. Some extended skin contact and bottling the final cuvee, both unfined and unfiltered, has maximised the wines true potential.

    Appearance

    Brick red in colour with brilliant crimson hues.

    Nose

    Perfumed and aromatic with a plushness and innate satisfaction to the nose, red currants, dark cherries and strawberry compote combine and are further enhanced with subtle oak and spicy herb nuances, contributing to the wine’s overall appeal.

    Palate

    Instantly recognised as Grenache – from its long, mineral driven structure and chalky tannins, to its bright cherry and blackcurrent fruits – the wine remains anchored to its unique terroir. Its sense of place carried from start, through to a persistent, flavoursome finish.
