It is unusual and rare to find 100% Grenache wines, as most of the time it is blended. Stephen has been making a varietal Grenache from McLaren Vale for the past 22 years and can now provocatively state that he thinks it ages more gracefully than McLaren Vale Shiraz. Grenache will become McLaren Vale’s most recognised wine and our true wine of place.

Grape Variety

Grenache

Region

McLaren Vale

Size

750ml

Wine Style

Red - juicy, smooth, medium-bodied

Palate

A flavour invasion of cherry, cranberry, spice and rose petals. The tannins are like a skeleton holding the flavour together before sneaking back to the front of the palate and starting all over again. Reminiscent of young Nebbiolo.

Vintage

2020

Food Pairing

Slow Roast Shoulder of Lamb with Palestinian Spices in Zaitoun by Yasmin Khan.

”A more successful vintage across the elevated sands of Blewitt Springs than Clarendon. Delicious wine. Kirsch, thyme, dried rosemary, lavender, mint and florals, tiptoeing along a balance beam of fibrous tannins and saline freshness. Nothing drying. A squeaky pucker to the finish. Aussie sweet fruit, to be sure. But tamed. Long, flowing and sandy of aura. Bravo!”
– Ned Goodwin MW
