This is one sexy red wine, & Grenache as it really should be: super aromatic, pretty as heck, supple & yet full of verve.

About The Wine
After falling in love with the legendary Grenache-based wine wines of Chateauneuf du Pape, USA born Sommeliers Richard Betts and Carla Rzeszewski found their way to Vine Vale in the Barossa Valley on a mission to make one of their own.
They purchased an old vineyard in the heart of the sub-region, one that had the deep sandy soils and cool nights that would make the particular 'pinot-esque' style of Grenache that really turned them on.
Very little in terms of winemaking here for Sucette, a little whole bunch, basket pressed to old French oak and nursed to bottle to preserve all the nuance that this lovely oldsite imparts on the Grenache variety.
It's a pretty yet powerful wine. Jump in and check it out. Stocks are very limited.
