100% Grenache from the Zerella old vineyard in the Seaview sub-region of McLaren Vale, South Australia.
Fruit was hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and left to drain in the press for 24 hours, without too much colour extraction in order to keep the wine as pale as possible. The juice was settled, racked and then fermented using a more neutral yeast strain. It was then lightly fined, filtered and put into bottle as soon as possible to maintain the crisp delicate aromatics and savoury tannin structure.
A pretty nose full of strawberries, cherries and subtle rose petal aromatics. The palate has a lovely savoury tannin profile and crisp drying acid which gives it great length.
