About The Wine
The Cirillo Vincent Grenache lays claim year after year to be one of the country's best value Grenache, and the 2018 release 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.
Marco Cirillo is Barossan to the core.
His family lays claim to the world’s oldest Grenache vines, the most ancient of them dating back to 1850.
His range of wines made primarily from Grenache and Shiraz scream quality at every level, with enormous value to match. Traditional Barossa winemaking meets historic vineyard resources - a true gem of Australia's most famous wine producing region.
