Grenache Clare Valley South Australia
Gratefully Grenache driven, delicately open fermented and gently basket pressed, vinified exclusively from fruit grown to vines planted in 1919 by a returned serviceman, who'd been granted the property as part of an ANZAC resettlement scheme. Being bushvines, they grow low to the ground and are untrellissed. Grapes are all hand picked, as modern harvesters cannot collect the fruit, ensuring inclusion of nothing but the highest quality berries.

In 1856, an Irish cobbler named Hugh Reilly arrived in the tiny Clare Valley township of Mintaro. Over the next ten years, Hugh converted the stone barn that had been his home into a cottage. Reilly's Cottage served as the local Cobbler's Shop at the centre of the bustling town, which had boomed with the discovery of slate in the area. Almost 140 years later, the cottage has been restored to its former glory, the home to Reilly Wines. The Grenache vines are ninety years of age, dry grown and cropped at 1.5T/acre. Parcels are inoculated to yeast strain AWRI 796 and treated to an open fermentation for ten days, followed by up to two years maturation in a combination of French and American oak hogsheads.
Deep dark red/ purple colour. Aromas of spicey blueberry and nutella, chocolateyness and violet, hints of ribena and mint. The palate is remarkably satisfying, with never a dissenter to this lovely wine, it pleases all comers. Serve with beef pot pie, olive and wild mushrooms.
