They will generally be sourced from our quality suppliers and will fill niches in our portfolio. Wines will eventually cover a range of varieties and wine styles from various regions, without being limited to single varieties or regions.
Barossa Valley, Gnarly Old Vine Grenache.

We have one rule when it comes to the vines and winemaking, Benign Neglect. Less is more. Less fertilizers, less pesticides and less intervention. Vegan friendly.
From an 80yo vineyard in Nurioopta, hand picked and naturally fermented for 12-14 days in an open fermenter. Basket pressed to seasoned oak for 12 months before bottling without fining or filtration.
Color: Medium to deep ruby with garnet hues.
Nose: A complex nose of red fruits, spices, and earth. There are hints of raspberry, strawberry, plum, black pepper, and cedar. There is also a touch of sweetness on the nose, from the ripe fruit.
Palate: The wine is medium-bodied with a rich, velvety texture. The flavors of red fruits, spices, and earth are well-balanced by the oaky notes. There is also a touch of sweetness on the finish. The wine has good acidity, which helps to balance the sweetness and the tannins.
Overall: This is a complex and elegant wine that is well-structured and balanced. It would be a great pairing with grilled meats, game, or hearty pasta dishes.
Other notes: The wine was bottled unfiltered, which gives it a slightly hazy appearance. It has a medium-plus acidity and a long, lingering finish.
