Small, hand picked parcels from iconic vineyards throughout McLaren Vale, with some vines well over 80 years old. This is a Grenache focussed wine, predominantly grown on the high, sandy soils of Blewitt Springs. Partly fermented in locally made terracotta pots, gently hand plunged with extended time on skins. All parcels were individually basket pressed, before being matured for 10 months in seasoned French and older American oak.
A bright, juicy wine with characters of rose, raspberry, apricot, turkish delight and market spices. Light on it's feet and luscious in texture.
