The palate's beautifully fresh and lithe, really nicely honed in terms of tannin, and vibrant and succulent... Superb wine.

About the Wine

The Cirillo Vincent Grenache lays claim year after year to be one of the country's best value Grenache, and the 2016 is no exception.

Marco Cirillo's family lays claim to the world's oldest Grenache vines, the most ancient of them dating back to 1850. The Vincent is the baby of the bunch made from a blend of 80, 90 and 100-year-old vine material.

Vincent is a charismatic character, just like his maker. It bucks the trend of big, sweet, oaky Barossa Grenache and sits firmly in the bright, cheery and gluggable camp.

A portion of whole bunches give it a lifted perfume and silky texture, while the use of older French oak and stainless steel ensure this is a lot brighter and bouncier than many of its Barossa counterparts.

About Cirillo Estate

Marco Cirillo is Barossan to the core. His family lays claim to the world’s oldest continuously functioning Grenache vines, the most ancient of them dating back to 1850. This is an incredible achievement from the Cirillos and those vignerons who have tended to these vines for over 160 years.

Marco's range of wines made primarily from Grenache and Shiraz scream quality at every level, with old vine concentration paired with modern brightness of fruit.  Considering the incredible history in every bottle, they provide incredible value for the money also - the Vincent Grenache is one of the best $20ish wines in the country. One of our favourite Barossa producers.

"A concentrated and deeply flavorsome Grenache from the sandy Vine Vale soils, this has attractive spicy red and purple berry fruits with some gently stony, almost flinty edges and hints of wild roasting herbs. The palate's beautifully fresh and lithe, really nicely honed in terms of tannin, and vibrant and succulent. Red-plum and dark-cherry flavors snap fresh through the finish. Superb wine. Drink now and for 10+ years." - Nick Stock (JamesSuckling.com)
