TASTING NOTES

New Release!


Made from the fruit of 80 year old vines  on our Blewitt Springs property, an area that James Halliday refers to as the “Holy of Hollies“ for Grenache.

This wine exhibits powerful fruit flavours interlaced  with a ripe and fine tannin profile.

The grapes were crushed and destemmed and vinified in open fermenters this wine has seen very little oak influence in order  to exhibit the purity of Blewitt Springs Grenache


Colour : deep garnet of high intensity

Nose : Dark briary fruit with playful notes of red licorice and white pepper

Palate :  Kirsch liqueur with brighter notes of musk. The palate is powerful in fruit weight but the fine tannin and natural acidity keep the flavours bright and pure.
