Crafted from two Watervale vineyards which are dry farmed, hand pruned and hand harvested with an average vine age of 70 years. Together, they set a very high standard for this classic Clare Valley Grenache.
Grenache from old and low-yielding dry grown vines within the Watervale sub-region of the Clare Valley were vinified separately, and remained so until the final wine was assembled. Fifteen months of maturation in a selection of seasoned French oak puncheons provides a softness and elegance to the plush velvety palate.
Appearance Translucent crimson red.
Lifted red berries and dark cherry give way to savoury notes of leather black olive.
A fresh and lively palate, yet dark and brooding at the same time. The combination of ripe cherries, dark chocolate and savoury spice are perfectly balanced by fine chalky tannins and subtle oak culminating in a long flavoursome finish.
