Grenache has been an integral variety in the Barossa since the early days of grape growing in the region. Today, it is easy to make the case that Grenache blended with its Rhone brethren of Shiraz and Mataro are the up and coming stars of the Barossa.

A bright and elegant style with the Grenache bringing freshness, lifted red fruits and spice, Shiraz for structure and palate length, whilst the Mataro provides an attractive textural savouriness.

Winemakers Comments

The 2019 vintage was characterised by a warm and extremely dry growing season, with very low rainfall. As a result yields were significantly impacted with resultant smaller berries and bunches. The fruit for all three varietals was harvested at optimum ripeness, whilst ensuring freshness and vibrancy of fruit was retained. The Shiraz was fermented separately in an open top concrete fermenter with gentle pump overs, whilst the later ripening Grenache and Mataro were co-fermented. After secondary fermentation and further maturation in French oak, careful blending of this wine was achieved to drive a bright and elegant style with the Grenache bringing freshness, lifted red fruits and spice, Shiraz for structure and palate length, whilst the Mataro provides an attractive textural savouriness. - Jules Ashmead & Brock Harrison
