About The Wine

Exciting wine here, from the hands of winemaker Wes Pearson.

This is Grenache from a vineyard in the Clarendon sub-region of McLaren Vale. A vineyard that was planted 90 years ago.

As Campbell Mattinson noted in his review, this strikes that elusive balance between finesse and power effortlessly. If you like Grenache while it's rippling with primary fruit, there is plenty of joy to be had here already.

However, if you are looking for something that will look all the better in a few years time, this will equally fit the bill. Another wine to add to McLaren Vale's impressive list of excellent Grenache.

Only 100 dozen made & 96 points from James Halliday.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"An exotic grenache with scents of Turkish delight, violet and kirsch, hailing from 90yo vines in Clarendon. The wine was fully destemmed which seems counterintuitive in a region with wines often requiring all the structural attributes that they can glean from the fruit, stems and all. Yet this is sumptuous. The tannins sandy, detailed and svelte; the acidity gentle, but there. Ethereal." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)

The Wine Front

"McLaren Vale grenache is such a star nowadays. It’s more about finesse than power, though it doesn’t lack the latter. This is all red berries and anise, dry spices, orange peel and florals, though the combined effect is better than the individual parts. It’s a wine drawn with a fine tip, rather than with a broad brush. It presents quite beautifully." - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
