|When to drink|
This Old Vine Grenache is made from a single vineyard planted in 1935 as bush vines on the Kalleske farm. The vineyard soil is shallow sand with light clay subsoil and the grapes are entirely dry-grown ensuring intensely flavoured fruit.
2021 Old Vine Grenache is dark red-purple in colour.
Aromatically it is unmistakable pure varietal Grenache. Bright, uplifting with floral perfume, raspberries, cherries, musk, clove spice, sarsaparilla, and choc mint. Extremely engaging!
The palate is full-bodied with plush varietal fruit throughout. It is a rich wine; initial softness opens to a fine structure and then light natural tannins emerge. Pure and honest, varietal old vine Grenache fruit is meshed through every layer and extends long into the lingering finish. This distinguished Grenache drinks well now but can equally be cellared.
