Description

A newcomer to the line-up. From a selection of our Grenache blocks ranging in age from 75 to 100 years old. The back label tells of Martin Luther’s founding of the Lutheran church which of course eventually gave rise to our beloved Barossa.

Lovely garnet hue but with some crimson brightness there as well. The nose shows some quiet spice and musk at this stage, with a gentle calm aromatic sweetness rather than strident coconut ice/lollipop Grenache. Some spicy herb and garrigue on the initial tasting but leading into a plush, sweet structure with mid palate weight and smoothness. Will richen and develop more highly perfumed and complex flavours with time.
