The Story

A true individual showcasing the essence of Grenache. Hand picked from just 820 gnarly old Bush Vines planted in 1889, these wines have been in the ground for over 125 years. Their home is two acres of estate owned sandy soil over yellow-brown clay in the heart of the Barossa Valley. Year after year these veteran vines give up small quantities of exceptional grapes.

Written Notes

Planted in the 1880s.
Deep garnet. Not very open on the nose but with a lovely dry savoury dark character on the palate. Again the tannins have become refined with bottle age. Sweet and spicy and cool on the finish. (JH)
