The 2021 Release Grenache is here!
Grenache is a marginal and rare grape varietyin the Grampians ripening very late in the season. But harvests are trending earlier and it has such a wonderful, floral perfume... The future beckons!
Only the forth release from these young vines at the Arrawatta Vineyard south of Great Western. A coolish and low yielding year produced a light to medium bodied Grenache with excellent tension and crisp raspberry fruits. The natural ferments, large format old oak and zero movements of the wine up to bottling has preserved every ounce of flavour, aroma and complexity possible. It is a riot of pretty bright red fruits, spices and crushed herbs, and will delight right from release.
