The Wines

early 1950s Grenache, also some 1920s on deep (12 m) sedimentary sands with clay subsoils, destemmed, must cooled 5 days at 9°C, 15-20 day vinification, cap punchings, aged 70% 5-8 year 225-litre oak casks, 20% 2-3 year 225-litre oak casks, 10% new 225-litre oak casks 22 months, unfiltered, 13,000 b


dark red, black traces. Pepper, tar front nose, but floral-violet aromas close behind, vanilla touches, briar. Grippy red fruit on the palate – it persists with a clear, notably fresh run, and the aftertaste is bright, shows the tang of licorice. Drinks well now. Good, esp given the drought year. 14.5° 2015-16 Oct 2009 A$35
