Details

This is an upbeat, bright fruit dominated example of a Grenache wine made from old vines and by keeping yields low. It dominates the mouth without being overpowering. The grapes are de stemmed and roller crushed before being cold soaked for 24 hours. Fermentation takes place in open tanks for 6 days on the skins. It is then transferred to stainless steel tank with oak inserts to finish fermentation, after which it is racked and transferred into a mix of French and American oak barrels for 10 months maturation before being filtered and bottled. The yields are kept very low to improve the intensity of the wine and the entire annual production rarely goes over 10,000 cases. The winemaker is Simon Hackett – he was born in the Barossa Valley into a family who had been involved in the wine business for generations. His winery is situated in Budgen Road at the start of the McLaren Valley. He hand crafts his wines and has never been afraid of using lesser known grape varieties.
