Whole Berry

McLaren Vale Grenache Whole Berry 2014

 

Winemaking : Hand picked, 70 year old, single vineyard bush vine Grenache from Blewitt Springs was split into two, half tonne fermentation bins. No pumps were used in the vinification of our grenache wines, just gravity flow.

Half a tonne of whole, de-stemmed berries was fermented to dryness, then the free run juice was run to a neutral French oak barrique.

After nine months maturation in the oak we hand bottled 100 bottles.

Enjoy through to 2020.

100 bottles produced.
