About

Grenache & the Barossa have a long history.

This is winemaker Pete Hiscock’s take on the pairing from 2014. The fruit originates from a small 37-year-old block in Light Pass.

This is a beautifully judged first Grenache release from this new producer. It’s serious in style yet still light on its feet - a difficult balance to maintain sometimes with this variety.

In his 93 point review, Campbell Mattinson commented that, “This is a statement of quality from the outset.”

If the suite of 2014 reds from this producer are anything to go by, Rock of Wisdom is a Barossan name to keep an eye on. And with only 71 dozen made, the wines will not be around for long.

What It Tastes Like

“Personality plus. This is a statement of quality from the outset. Assorted berries meet mineral, woodsmoke, spice and gunpowder. Firm-ish tannin; just enough. Lots of lift. Lots of life. This really is a ‘live one’.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
