MUSEUM RELEASE

We’ve recently enjoyed tasting some older wines at Cellar Door and thought it would be great to release a small allocation of wines from the museum for you to enjoy at home.

This was the first release of the Western Ridge Grenache Carignan, from our Greenock vineyard.

Winemakers Comments

The two varieties were handpicked and placed into the crusher simultaneously. Fermentation in open top concrete fermenters at relatively cool temperatures to ensure the freshness of the fruit character was preserved, with intention that the wine be luscious and textural, yet be as far from the blockbuster concept as possible. - Richard Langford
