Head Old Vine Grenache 2022 14.20% 750ml

Head Old Vine Grenache 2022 14.20% 750ml

The Old Vine Grenache is one of Alex's specialities and arguably one of the first and most important Grenache wines of the modern era to inspire the flood of more refined Grenache we see emerging across Australia today.

The fruit from this 166-year-old vineyard gets full opportunity to show its true character. An extraordinary wine for its price. It shows a rare restraint in the use of oak. It's all about the dark rich fruit, and with fruit this beautiful, by Jove, it should be! Lots of baked earth and spice flavours too.

An excellent contemporary example of Australia's world-class Grenache capabilities.

Winemaker's Notes
Luckily, we have access to very small parcels of fruit from old, dry-grown, hand-pruned/picked vineyards of up to 166 years of age. We decided early on that making a Grenache the way Barossan families made table wines many generations ago would honour the years of back-breaking work that went into keeping the vineyards feasible and sustainable. Whole-bunch ferments, no crushing or temperature control, natural yeasts, hand-plunged and foot-trodden.
