Grenache Heathcote Victoria
Introducing the pretty pink drink of the Red Claw range, by the founders of Yabby Lake, one of Australia's most dynamic winemaking ventures. Hand crafted from estate grown Heathcote Grenache and vinified to an uncompromising standard of excellence, Pink Claw was established to aid women affected by breast cancer. Quantities of Pink Claw are donated to fund raising events sponsored by Breast Cancer Network Australia. A limited allocation is available for retail, a portion of the profits will also go to BCNA.
Breast Cancer Network Australia works to ensure that women diagnosed with breast cancer receive the very best information, treatment, care and support possible, no matter who they are or where they live. BCNA is the peak national organisation for Australians affected by breast cancer. Harvests of Grenache are sourced from the Yabby Lake property at Heathcote. Grapes are pressed and spend up to twenty four hours on skins for extraction of flavours and colour. Juices are run off to fermenters for cold settling, racked and vinified to dry, followed by four months resting on lees where the wine develops textures and complexity. Pink Claw is bottled without any oak treatment, refreshingly fruit driven and dry.
Lipstick rose colour. Lifted strawberry aromas with a complexity of citrus, spice and floral characters. A crisp palate exhibiting red berry fruit, cherries, currant and srawberry over light tannins, before a refreshing, savoury finish. Pink Claw is bone dr, savoury and extremely food friendly, perfectly suited to modern Australian faire.
