The Treasure Trove Grenache is a part of our Firehawk Farm, a single biodynamically run vineyard perched atop an ancient ridge overlooking McLaren Vale, the Willunga escarpment and the Gulf St Vincent. Firehawk is our Native Bird of Prey that soars over our vineyards acting as scarecrow to other birds, rabbits and the like that eat ripening grapes. Selected bunches were handpicked by family and friends in early March. We gently crushed two thirds of the fruit over whole bunches into open top fermenters. After 7 days of fermentation the wine was basket pressed into French oak barrels, some new and the balance seasoned. This was followed by 18 months maturation with minimal winemaking artefact before bottling, to capture the essence of the vineyard. The wine will reward cellaring and decanting.

Palate

A mouthful of the rich and the ripe grenache is combined with it’s better alter-ego: the harder greener herbs and the oft elusive tannins (some courtesy of oak) and - importantly - the wellgrown vineyard acidity which keeps the entire grenache parliament in order. Without the acidity, grenache is a cartilaginous rabble. Here it is proud and upright, rather than supine. Tautness, refreshment, a giving nature; yet also fun. Fun, fun, fun..

Food Pairing

The tale of two seasons: chill slightly in the warmer months with barbecued pork or spicy chicken. In the winter - cassoulet. And don’t rule out char-grilled salmon cutlets - the fish’s oiliness and the grenache’s ripe acidity…
