2018 Strawberry Patch
Grenache Rose ***SOLD OUT***

Rose_edited.jpg

With a lifted nose of strawberry and guava, this is a classic dry-style rose made from 100% Grenache. A lifted bright palate consisting of strawberry and guava fruit. The finish is crisp and dry.

The fruit for this wine came from our Santa Monica vineyard on California Road in the Tatachilla region of McLaren Vale. The 4.5 acres of Grenache were planted in 2000 in the gently undulating red/grey sandy loam soils. The vineyard was previously a strawberry paddock, hence the name, and black plastic remnants are sometimes still seen in the vineyard rows.

It is fantastic with food including cheese platters, pasta and pork belly.

2021 vintage coming soon!

2013 GSM ***SOLD OUT***
(Grenache 75%, Shiraz 12.5%, Mataro 12.5%)

Dark raspberry bouquet with hints of blueberry, dried herbs and a lingering spice finish. Medium-bodied balanced palate with a light but firm structure. Rich and generous savoury fruit flavours raspberry and mulberry. 

The Grenache and Shiraz fruit were sourced from our Santa Monica vineyard on California Road, Tatachilla and the Mataro came from a nearby vineyard. The Grenache vines were planted in 2000 and the Shiraz in 1996. 

Following crushing the fruit was fermented in one tonne open top fermenters.  The ferments were hand plunged twice daily to enhance skin contact and colour extraction. 

The ferments were combined, basket pressed and then transferred to barrel in April 2013, where it spent 18 months in seasoned French oak.

Drinking beautifully now!

Initial bright fruit intertwined with hints of chocolate and spice. It starts off subtle but slowly builds giving you a hint of what lies beneath. Strong rich fruit is the backbone of this, savoury, mouth filling and definitely McLaren Vale Shiraz. This wine was aged in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak. 

Fruit for this wine is sourced from our Santa Monica vineyard in the Tatachilla region of McLaren Vale. The vines were planted in 1996; the soil in the region is classified as Pirramimma Sandstone but this particular block is a heavy red loam over broken sandstone.
