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.

About Cirillo

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

How do they do it for the price?! This is just great drinking. Riberries, plum and black cherry. Fine but plush and silky smooth. There's high pixel tannin and tons of moreish, spicy fruit. Remarkable fruit depth for the price. Richer and more fleshy than the 2017 release and all the better for it. Brilliant for the bucks. - Different Drop Wine Team

"An impressive wine from the first moment, this has a very rich array of intense raspberry and red-plum aromas, framed in gentle, spice and fresh-pastry notes. The palate is so fresh and so concentrated with ripe raspberries and red plums. This is truly exceptional." - Nick Stock (jamessuckling.com)

The Wine Front

"Rich red fruits, sage and spice, has intensity and a salami-like savoury edge. Dense, minty, tannin is fleshy and fine-grained, menthol and dried herb on a long and firm finish. A lot of character, and verity of fruit. Really good." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Another great vintage

Fantastic drinking and value here. Light-medium bodied. Quality fruit is there, but is not over powering and everything is in balance. There is quite a bit of detail here - be sure to let it open up over an afternoon/evening.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
