Wine Advocate ReviewThe most backward, structured, tannic, and ageworthy of these offerings is always the Grenache Romas. The estates flagship Grenache, it is fashioned from 86-year-old vines planted on ironstone soils at the highest elevation of the Blewitt Springs Vineyard. The 2004 Grenache Romas exhibits gorgeous notes of loamy soil, truffles, kirsch, spice box, blackberries, and licorice. This full-bodied, powerful, tannic 2004 will benefit from another 1-3 years of bottle age, and should age easily for 10-15+ years.

Wine Advocate ReviewThe 2004 Grenache Clarendon Hills exhibits a lovely dark ruby color along with a big, sweet kiss of black cherry liqueur intermixed with hints of tobacco leaves and resiny pine forest scents. Aromatic, smooth, velvety textured, and sexy, this is a full-bodied, delicious Grenache to drink over the next 7-8 years.


Winemaker's Notes:

This vineyard was planted in 1925 in the conventional bush vine manner with no trellising. The vineyard is very steep and faces due east, the soils contain high levels of ironstone, rock and quartz. This is the highest part of the Blewitt Springs Vineyard and also the lowest yielding, about one tonne to the acre. The grapes are handpicked, usually quite early in the season, due to very low crops and the ability of Old Grenache to ripen. The wine is made like all Clarendon Hills Wines, with natural yeasts and minimal intervention but sees no new oak barrels, usually 2-3 year old barrels of seasoned French barriques. The resultant wine has a most exotic element to it reminiscent of Naomi Campbell in high heels wearing pink lipstick – wow! First vintage 1999.
