About

Brendan Keys has been championing this more perfumed, vibrant expression of Grenache for some time and with the hordes of smaller McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley producers now following suit, it seems his vision has been vindicated. This comes from the Blewitt Springs sub-region that is responsible for some of the country's most exciting old vine Grenache. 100% whole bunches, wild yeast fermented and 100% old, neutral French oak - this is all about raw, beautiful Grenache fruit. As BK said himself it's more reminiscent of a spicy, savoury 'Garnacha' (Spanish for 'Grenache') than the typical rich and luscious Aussie renditions, looking for structure and power with an edge of beauty.

What it Tastes Like

The 2016 is a powerful, gravelly, Grenache. It smells of bergamot tea, licorice all sorts, fresh cherries and mulched bark. Dark and moody with some floral highlights. Enchanting. Serious. Muscular. One of the cellar.
