In the North Western section of the Barossa Valley, the red clay loam over marl (a friable earthly deposit consisting of clay and limestone) produces the highest quality red wines by reducing water and nutrient uptake. Grenache grapes were sourced from a single vineyard in our favourite north western section of the Barossa Valley. The grapes were harvested early to provide bright aromatics and a soft, succulent palate.
There’s a bath of liquorice and vibrant black fruits, crunchy acidity, a sexy velvety structure with lightness and purity; free flowing and loose, with wonderful lashings of good focussed tannin. Utterly delicious, incredible length.
