2014 Kelly 1932 Grenache


A 100% single vineyard wine, hand selected from the traditionally pruned bush vine Kelly vineyard in Sevenhill, planted in 1932.
  • Winemaking

    An important wine within our Reserve portfolio, the Kelly Grenache gets maximum attention in the cellar. We know that great wines always start off in the vineyard, but once this small parcel of fruit arrives at our winery, it is vinified in a small open-topped fermenter, allowed extended time on skins, basket pressed into seasoned French oak hogsheads and allowed to mature for 15 months in the cellar. Bottling the wine both unfined and unfiltered has further enhanced its complexity.

    Appearance

    Bright red in colour with youthful crimson hues.

    Nose

    Dark cherries, fresh strawberries, cashew and truffle oil rise up on the nose, nicely underpinned by subtle toasty oak.

    Palate

    Richly flavoured and textured; a striking introduction of dark cherries, layers of dark chocolate, licorice overtones, seasoned meats and smoky oak notes seamlessly roll into a finish bound by chalky natural tannins and slippery acidity.
