SKU: HEIALCGRE21
The Heirloom Vineyards Alcala McLaren Vale Grenache was produced from our best McLaren Vale Vineyard. The plushness and generosity of the grenache fruit is brilliantly displayed across the palate, but it is also brilliantly offset by plating tannins and an in-and-out running acidity. All of these qualities crash balletically together at the end of the palate, as if a well-practised circus troupe: cherried fruits, puckering tannins, and piquant acidity. Whole bunch extended maceration, integrated and balanced with fruit.

Red - juicy, smooth, medium-bodied

Palate

Clean and clear acidity ushers everything else in: round tannins that are at once both miniature and everywhere; dark berry fruits that are as cool as the cool morning upon which they were cooly picked; and then dry and savoury flavours and textures trip in as if all so naturally intended, by some Great Clockmaker. This is red wine that has a meaningful weightlessness and an elfin heft.

Food Pairing

Moroccan Steak Pitas

”The super-heavyweight bottle is a model of everything you might seek in McLaren Vale grenache and friends. It soars with red fruits that make applause mandatory, then dips into more sombre fruits bordering jam or liqueur.”
– James Halliday
