Brick red in colour with vibrant crimson hues. The nose is seductively perfumed, layered notes of chocolate, liqueur and truffles all interweave with quality French oak char. Richly focused and enticing, the flavours of dark chocolate, earthiness and seasoned oak marry together in a tightly wound yet deliciously long finish.
Only from the best Cleare Valley vintages do we release the single vineyard Duke Grenache. The 2009 vintage gave perfectly low ripening fruit which was intensly flavoured and aromatic, fine grained tannins, all beautifully matched to a blend of new and seasoned french oak casks which quietly build texture and complexity. The duke Grenache was made in very limited quantities from a single eighty year old vineyard in the Watervale sub region of the Clare Valley. Fermented in small open topped vessels until dry, then basket pressed into small French oak casks for maturation for 22 months, before being bottled unfiltered.
Can be cellared for 10-12 years. Serve now with warm goats cheese and wild mushroom salad.
