The Old Legend pays homage to Barossa Grenache, which is commonly underrated. Grenache wines of various styles and blends have been produced in the Barossa for over 150 years and fortunately the Barossa continues to be littered by old vines and old clone vineyards.
This wine shows off the best characters of Grenache; Light yet vibrant colour, pretty yet complex nose, elegant yet textural palate; Traditional aromatics of strawberry, raspberry and turkish delight combine with a tropical fruit influence that provides additional aromatic lift. On the palate fresh strawberries provide the vibrant fruit you expect and the persistent tannins provide the savoury element of surprise. Spicy flavours of nutmeg and thyme also line the palate creating additional complexity and length.
