Vivacious Grenache from the Barossa Valley, savoury and complex, with red fruits including cranberries in the mouth and a nose-full of aniseed and spice.

Friend and vigneron Kevin Schild's grandfather and father planted these grenache vines with cuttings taken from another old Grenache vineyard - likely some of the earliest Grenache planted in the Barossa. The vineyard is in the sandy soils between the Vine Vale and Marananga parishes.

This Grenache is hand-picked and sourcedfrom two distinct areas in the vineyard. Fermentation takes place in an open fermenters with about 1/3rd whole bunches in the ferment left to cold soak for 24 hours and natural yeasts left to do their thing. A further 6 days of maceration takes place with the combination of selected yeast. The grapes are then pressed into large format second and third use French barrels (500L Puncheons) where the wine spends only three months before being bottled unfiltered and unfined to showcase the joy of tasting this wine in the barrel hall without any laboratory / bottling line accoutrements.

This could be a red for summertime drinking on its own but equally perfect for wild mushrooms, charcuterie, and dishes with some complex herbs such as tarragon.
