Grenache has taken very well to the balmy Mediterranean climes of McLaren Vale. Hand picked grapes are crushed and treated to a traditional vinification in the Pirramimma property's original open concrete vats. Following a course of daily pumpovers to extract optimal flavours, colour and tannin, the completed ferments are drained and the must is passed through a tradional hand operated basket press, returned and moved to a selection of American oak barriques for an extended maturation of two to three years. A selection of older oak mellows and integrates the tannin and fruit character while maintaining the distinctive personality and charm of dry grown McLaren Vale Grenache.
A deep red velvet taffetta colour. Violets, black currant and black fruit perfumes, animate cedar characters and hints of strawberry behind pepper and raspberry notes. A palate of festive pudding, parched red berries and bramble, toffee apple and prunes over supportive hickory oak and gritty, old world tannins. A delicious drink for all enthusiasts of the Aussie Rhone style of red wine, showing fruit, oak and fine grain tannins in complete harmony.
