Tasting Note

McLaren Vale Grenache Rosé

This small batch Grenache Rosé was handpicked in the cool morning, off 50-80 year old vines, on a boutique family owned vineyard in McLaren Vale.

 

Carefully handcrafted from the old vine Grenache fruit, this wine exhibits a bouquet of cherry and strawberry; a creamy mouth feel, finishing with a continuing bright line of acid. Light bodied, with great length.

McLaren Vale Grenache

The grapes used for this Grenache are off the same vines as the Grenache Rosé. To produce the Grenache the grapes were left on skins for 14 days and then a small portion was kept in French oak barrels for 12 months inducing a slight vanilla character.

 

With white pepper and floral aromas, this Grenache has a velvety delicate palate consisting of juicy raspberry, cherry, plum and refined tannins.
