2016 Dry as a Bone
90% Grenache from a 50 year old vineyard in Light Pass in the heart of the Barossa Valley, 7% Mataro, 2% Alicante Bouschet and 1% Shiraz from a 10 year old inter-planted field blend from Matt’s block in Seppeltsfield.
The Grenache was harvested in the cool of the night, while the field blend was hand picked during the day. Both parcels of fruit were pressed as quickly as possible when they arrived at the winery in order to minimise the colour pickup in the wine. The Grenache was fermented wild in a stainless steel tank, while the field blend fermented wild in old french oak puncheons. Once dry, the two parcels were blended together to make the final wine. No fining agents were used in the making, so this wine is Vegan friendly.
Very pale salmon colour with aromas of musk, rosewater and guava. The palate is dry and creamy with hints of raspberry, finishing savoury with great acidity.
