SKU: TSCTOBGRE21
Deep soaking winter rains that trickled into spring provided a spectacular start to the growing season. The moist soils minimised the threat of frosts, followed with a mild spring at bud break made for a promising start to an incredible vintage. Despite its dryness, the growing season was relatively mild. Warm days, cool nights and little to no disease pressure gave rise to fruit rich in flavour and naturally high acid, all with relatively modest sugar levels. The wines produced from 2021 will drink well young and many, if allowed, will cellar well to remind us of the great vintage. One of the best vintages in the recent decade.

Spices dominate here. Prettiness and delicacy give way to grip and concentrations. Savoury tannins persist and elevate the red fruit to a new level of complexity.

Food Pairing

Pairs well with Asian cuisine, light roasted meats and earthy vegetables.

”Grenache sourced from Marananga in the west of the Barossa. A portion of the fruit is destemmed and fermented cool for aromatics, the remainder destemmed and crushed on top of its stalks in concrete fermenters, matured in terracotta amphorae for eight months. Airy, diaphanous and beautifully perfumed with spicy red plum, redcurrant and raspberry notes that mesh with Asian spice, blossom, red licorice and gingerbread. Just lovely drinking with plenty of detail and clarity. Don't be afraid to pop this one in the fridge to take the edge off.”
