Ministry of Clouds McLaren Vale Grenache 2020 is a celebration of the dogged stubbornness of two McLaren Vale families, who persisted with their plots of Grenache when others implored them to turn their land into other pursuits. From very old bush vines to each vineyard eighty years plus, the Ministry of Clouds makes a contemporary Grenache with fragrance, succulence and fine-boned structure. Entwined within a complex deep core of red and purple fruit aromas, violets, earth and herbs tinged.

McLaren Vale

Size

750ml

Wine Style

Red - juicy, smooth, medium-bodied

Palate

Pure with old-vine flesh, calming depth and purity of red fruits, but kept necessarily fresh by grainy tannins and a bright line of natural acid

Vintage

2020

”Ex bush vines up to 100yo; 80% whole berries, 20% whole bunches in an open wild ferment; 21 days on skins; matured in old oak for 10 months. Superb colour, vivid and clear; the scented, spicy, flowery bouquet leads a red berry/cherry/piquant palate, savoury elements increasing overall complexity.”
– James Halliday
