About The Wine
One for the Grenache lover with a penchant for the prettier side of the variety.
The fruit from this 60+ year-old vineyard in McLaren Vale has been carefully guided by winemaking husband and wife team Luke Growden and Caleigh Hunt into a lovely, delicate yet intriguing style of Grenache.
With a judicious amount of whole bunch and a focus on fruit rather than oak, this is a vibrant expression that is impossible to stop drinking. As with all of Luke and Caleigh's wines, this was only a tiny production.
It's a bright, perky, delicious example of McLaren Vale Grenache.
About Year Wines
This dynamic couple were named as the Best New Act at the 2015 Young Guns of Wine Awards.
The story of Year Wines is one of love and family, of serendipity and opportunity. When Luke met Caleigh whilst working as a lowly cellar hand, it was love at first sight. Eight years, two kids and a mortgage later and they are producing some gorgeous small-batch wines together from McLaren Vale.
Their wines are made in minuscule quantities, often no more than 30 dozen at a time, and their raw quality and undeniable personality make them very highly sought-after.
