Origin: McLaren Vale, South Australia

Varietal: Grenache

Producer's Notes: This vintage not one spray….and is from a certified organic vineyard planted in 1946. Dry grown in red loamy clay with ironstone over deep limestone and schist. Lifted spice, Satsuma plum compote and a herbal thread of thyme with white pepper entwine the strikingly fragrant bouquet of bouillon. The palate entry is opulent yet nervy with medium bodied savoury (almost Pinot like) finely grained textural components resembling pomegranate and lingonberry. Bottled in clear glass to encourage the glorious simplicity of what mother‐nature can provide without interference.
