We couldn't not have a play with this insane old bush-vine Grenache from the sands of Blewitt Springs. Raspberry and redcurrant on the nose and in the mouth it has those subtle and silky tannins we all love in Grenache. A treasure.
Vineyard: Brini (Blewitt Springs)
Vine age: 82 years

Vinification: Our only foray into another region but its just across the border…half the wine is from a ferment with 20% whole cluster maceration for 28 days, the second half of the wine is 100% whole cluster, fermented for three months. After pressing both components spent eight months in neutral French oak barriques and terracotta eggs.
