Constructed during early settlement by a supervisor of colonial convicts, at the very epicentre of the market gardens which serviced Hobart, Clarence House is a heritage listed manor which remains largely unaltered since the 1830s. It passed through several hands before being acquired by the Kilpatricks in 1993, who answered the call of Bacchus and established the grounds to vine. There are now sixteen hectares of viticulture, several significant Burgundy clones of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, with smaller plantings of Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet and Tempranillo.

Bethany Old Vine Grenache CONFIRM VINTAGE

Grenache Barossa South Australia
Grenache is picked very late in the season at optimal ripeness, off three very precious blocks, fifty to ninety years of age on the Schrapel family vineyards. These gnarled old plantings yield grapes of striking intensity, power and beauty, treated to a minimalist vinification, to capture and retain the spectacular quality of fruit within the bottle. A seductively redolent nose of black cherries, hibiscus flowers and cacao, followed by a feminine palate of wild strawberries and dark spice over a seamless tapestry of fine grained tannins.
