Sourced from our own Rayner Vineyard in McLaren Vale. We have a 0.7ha block of 43 year old Grenache vines planted in sand. We selected the lowest yielding vines and hand-picked the grapes. 75% of the blend spent 35 days on skins with very gentle extraction to build beautiful texture. We're looking here to make a wine that is aromatic and bright , but has the tannin and acid structure to back it up. We feel like this wine is a great example of our wine growing and making philosophy.  135 dozen bottles made. 

"It’s a marvellous grenache. It has a bit of beef, a bit of flesh, and yet it promotes dryness, spice and structure ahead of fruit. It’s not thick or massively intense but it’s convincing and indeed powerful, by its own design. Licorice, graphite, flings of dried herbs and bushes, a campfire smokiness. It’s textural, it’s aromatic, it’s a treat. The linger of tannin and flavour here is quite superb. Your best glassware, please." - 94 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

"Great volume of fragrance here. Offers Turkish Delight and chocolate scents, sniffs of rose petal, touch of strawberry and vanilla. Pretty. Silken sheets of tannin draped on sweet, berry fruitiness with a light dusting of sweet spice, touch of orange juicy tan to close. Little crunch and pucker to finish. It’s a complete guzzler, but has the charisma to evolve in glass through a meal or similar. Effortless drinking here." - 92 points, Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
