...Captivating aromas of black cherry, violet, licorice and espresso; a rather Rayas-like style of grenache. Chewy, rich and sweet but also quite suave. A succulent, superripe basket of fruits complicated by torrefaction notes of coffee and chocolate... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Grenache wine from South Australia in Australia. 2001 Clarendon Hills Grenache Old Vines Romas Vineyard 750ml

While not as expressive as the Kangarilla the 2001 Grenache Old Vines Hickinbotham Vineyard is a full-bodied structured muscular effort with notes of black fruits intermixed with licorice acacia flowers and kirsch. More muted but super-concentrated it requires time to reveal itself. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.


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!
