$183.00 GST Included

AUSTRALIA WIDE SHIPPING INCLUDED

60% Grenache, 20% Shiraz and 20% Mourvedre

Bright light crimson hue. Fragrant bouquet of raspberry bonbon, wild cherries, and attractive hints of anise and dried herbs. The use of whole bunch fermented Grenache adds an overlay of fresh vitality.

Supple and juicy, the palate is a heady mix of plum and cherry liqueur producing a medium bodied wine in the fresh red spectrum seamlessly couched in a savoury crosscurrent of fine tannins. The result is excellent flavour intensity of great length and purity.

The 3 components were hand harvested and fermented separately in upright static 10t fermenters. 20% of the Grenache was whole bunch fermented and matured separately. The standard fermentations proceeded at about 20-24°C for 8 days, with juice being pumped over the skins twice daily. When most of the sugar had been converted, the wine was pressed, and pressings were added back to the free-run juice. The wine was then filled to a mix of French and American oak Hogsheads for maturation for only 6 months.

About Cape Barren Wines

Cape Barren wines are produced from vineyards particularly hand selected for their exceptional quality and consistency. Our reds are produced from the world renowned McLaren Vale region, from vines older than 45 years.

These seriously old vines produce wines of supreme concentration and complexity not seen in younger vines. It is this history on which our future lies. With its picturesque and undulating terrain, and maritime climate, McLaren Vale is one of the finest regions in the world for grape-growing — especially forShiraz and Grenache.

Here the temperatures drop dramatically, especially at night, and the soils can be demanding and unforgiving, leading to smaller, more intensely flavoured fruit. The region is a veritable maze of valleys and glens, with a criss-cross of slopes which offer every conceivable aspect and micro-climate variation. This not only makes the region both charming and strikingly beautiful — but also challenging.
