Grenache has been an integral variety in the Barossa since the early days of grape growing in the region. Traditionally used for fortified wines, Grenache was very much battered by the vine pull scheme of the 1970s. Today, it is easy to make the case that Grenache blended with its brethren of Shiraz and Mourvedre are the up and coming stars of the Barossa. Partnered alongside the best Shiraz, Grenache blends can make a significant one-two combination punch to ensure the world sits up and listens!

Winemakers Comments

Shiraz is typically the first to ripen and was open top fermented alone, with co-fermentation for the later ripening Grenache and Mourvedre. Both parcels were transferred separately to older French oak puncheons. The Shiraz was later added to the blend to enrich and balance the colours, aromas and flavours. Shiraz offers structure with black pepper and richness, Mourvedre gives earthiness and liquorice with Grenache offering roundness to palate and blue fruits.
