There is a great conversation going on at the moment about Grenache on sandy soils with Blewett Springs often mentioned. We would like to see Vine Vale included on the list and to that end a straight Grenache was required. We selectively picked from the oldest vines on the property into a stainless tank for 100% whole bunch fermentation, the entire batch fitted neatly into an older Puncheon. After a year we bottled. I absolutely adore this wine hopefully you will too.
Colour: Brick red with garnets.
Aroma: More savoury nose with brooding fruit, eucalypt and fennel.
Palate: Fruit showing here of the fresh forest variety, emery cloth tannin wrapped up in a cashmere like oak blanket. Long, goes on forever.
Summary: As we go along it is with pride that we start producing wines of this quality. All of the aspects of our viticulture and winemaking are on show.
