Vineyard and Winemaking info
Small portions of three distinct Grenache vineyards were blended to produce this joven style. One from the low altitude and coastal Lacey vineyard in Tatachilla, another from 80-year-old vines at the base of the Willunga foothills at one of the southern most points in the Vale, and a 60-year-old bush vine high in Blewitt Springs planted in deep sand. Parcels fermented separately, all harvested by hand and gently destemmed to give whole berry ferments. 10-15% whole bunches were added to the bottom of each ferment to begin fermenting carbonically. Bottled after 2 months in seasoned puncheons. No fining or sulphur additions.
