It’s a wicked drink with a light chill, but shows some elegance off the cuff. Actually, it’s super delicious.
About The Wine
This is the baby Grenache from Vanguardist and it offers brilliant value.
McLaren Vale Grenache is on the up and up. With the sandy soils of the Blewitt Springs sub-region recently producing some of the most lively and vivacious Grenache ever, the time to get amongst these delicious medium-bodied reds is now.
A lighter, more crunchy expression, this is the modern face of Grenache from this region, bright, energetic and undeniably delicious.
Vanguardist is an up and coming producer from McLaren Vale started by three friends after many long nights in Hawkes Bay talking about their shared love of wine.
Their mission is to bring premium, authentic, small-batch wines to a market they see as crowded by "overly commercialised wines produced by corporates who take up all the elbow room."
They source very high-quality fruit from great vineyards across South Australia, looking to build wines with texture and vibrancy.
With experienced winemaker Michael Corbett at the helm, the future looks bright for this plucky challenger brand.
