The Smart vineyard is owned by Bernie Smart and his son Wayne. It is the highest Grenache vineyard in McLaren Vale with soils up to 750 million years old. Unirrigated bush vines, managed by hand; we owe Bernie and Wayne a debt of gratitude for preserving this precious place.

Grape Variety

Grenache

Region

McLaren Vale

Size

750ml

Wine Style

Red - juicy, smooth, medium-bodied

Palate

The tannins are coiled and restrained by a corset of acid that releases on the back palate to reveal a bustle of fruit. The texture is polite and restrained but you can’t help but feel an edginess. It's light on its feet, exquisitely balanced, salivatingly moreish and definitively medium bodied. In the words of Stephen Pannell, “Geez that’s pretty.”

Stracotto

”Perhaps the finest vestige of Old-Vine Grenache in the country, the Smart vineyard is elevated, cool and ferrous. Pannell seems to care little about the eucalypt inflections that mark his wines, presumably part of the terroir. I’ll go with it. Bloodstone, tomato leaf, pickled ume, sour cherry and cardamon teem long. A wine of paradoxical beauty and older school sensibilities.”
