Rated 96 points by Halliday’s Wine Companion and 95 points by Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. A stellar debut vintage for our first Grenache.
“This 2021 Barossa Valley Grenache is a big, rich, supple and satisfying Grenache from a beautiful, cool (and even) growing season in the Barossa. This has notes of raspberry pip, red licorice, thyme, clove bud and brine—all of it framed by very fine tannins. This is a delicious wine. Really polished and nicely shaped…seductive plus.”

“95/5% grenache/mataro off 25yo vines, destemmed with some whole berries. Aged for 10 months in seasoned French oak puncheons and hogsheads. Bright red purple in the glass with aromas of juicy plum, red cherry fruits, exotic spice, gingerbread, violets, earth and red licorice. The fruit weight is spot on, pure yet with a distinct sense of space. The aromas transpose over onto the palate, which shows a chalky tannin texture and shimmering acid line. It’s a cracker.”
