About

The Old Vine Grenache is one of Alex's specialities. With the 2016 release, Alex has hit paydirt.

The fruit from this 101-year-old vineyard gets full opportunity to show its true character. An extraordinary wine for its price. It shows a rare restraint in the use of oak. It's all about the fruit, and with fruit this beautiful, by Jove, it should be!

In one of his highest rating reviews of the year for a Grenache, Gary Walsh called the 2016 "A wine with a beating heart, and a throbbing pulse. Exemplary. It will age beautifully too." in his 95 point review.

An excellent modern example of Australia's world-class Grenache capabilities. The praise more than justified with this excellent release.

What it Tastes Like

"Fabulous wine. It’s savoury and insistently tannic, not sweet, but full of juicy raspberry fruit. There’s a rose and spearmint perfume, peanuts and spice, medium bodied appeal, a sweep of shale-like tannin, subdued power, and a red fruited finish that cascades down the throat. A wine with a beating heart, and a throbbing pulse. Exemplary. It will age beautifully too." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
