Description

Grenache is Australia’s signature grape variety and we’re slightly obsessed with it. The white version is still rare in Australia but capable of beautifully textured, citrus-laced wines of great drinkability. The fruit was sourced from an organic McLaren Vale site and from a pioneering planting in the Riverland. Whole bunch pressing and oxidative handling before a wild ferment in both concrete egg and used French barrels. No MLF and maturation on lees for 4 months helped increase texture prior to bottling.

Review

An explosion of flavour meets suave, seductive personality! Bright, tangy citrus-laced fruit with hints of honeysuckle and lemon balm. Taut, yet textured and complex, this is a beautifully crafted white that breaks the mould.
