- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
Ministry of Clouds is a class outfit based out of McLaren Vale. Bernice and Julian started the brand as a way to free themselves from the constraints of the regular day-to-day grind of the wine industry. With Ministry of Clouds they explore all the varieties and regions that get their passions flowing.
This McLaren Vale Grenache is sourced from two separate vineyards. It was picked with optimal ripeness in mind, ripe fruit, ripe tannins, all packed into a slender frame.
The final result of the 2015 release is a clean, classic version of modern Grenache that is set to impress.
What It Tastes Like
Cherry ripe smells. A little cranberry and juicy acidity to keep the sexy red fruit moving at speed through the mouth. Classic fine sandy tannins. A solar flare of spice on the finish. They hit this nail right on the head.
Closure: Screw Cap

About the Producer
Ministry of Clouds
Ministry of Clouds is one of the best thought-out wine ventures in South Australia.
Owners Julian Forwood and Bernice Ong not only source fruit from some of McLaren Vale’s finest vineyards but go farther afield to make the styles of wine that they enjoy. Premium packaging, premium fruit; premium wines at a ridiculously reasonable price.
The South Australian region of McLaren Vale is famous for its powerful red wines. Shiraz and Grenache have thrived for years in the Vale’s sandy soils. Nowadays, the region’s varietal diversity has majorly increased, the coastal location and warm climate proving perfect for a new wave of varieties from Italy, Spain and Portugal. The success of varieties such as Nero d’Avola, Tempranillo, Touriga Nacional, and Fiano has transformed McLaren Vale into one of the country’s most vibrant wine scenes. It’s where tradition meets innovation and it is producing some of the Australia’s finest wines.
Grenache is the great sleeping giant of Australian red wine. We are the custodians of the oldest producing Grenache vines in the world, some ancient vineyards planted as far back as the 1850’s. Modern Australian Grenache is a different beast to the wines of yesteryear, they are more youthful and vibrant, showing bright red fruit characters, silky tannins and a delicious array of spices. With the viticultural resources we have at our disposal in this country, Australia can be one of the world’s leading producers of this variety, making wines that easily rival the best of Europe.
