Thorn-Clarke Single Vinyard Grenache
Best Grenache from South Africa?!?! You Decide!
The Single Vineyard Selection range focuses on single site, small batch wines, highlighting the true characteristics of each individual variety. Each block is hand selected by the winemaker and viticulturist each year, choosing the wines that best reflect the strengths of each individual vintage.
The vines sit in good sandy soils nestled below the ranges on the eastern side of the Barossa, enjoying cooling evening, gully winds and a temperature climate.
100% Grenache from 60 year old vines.
This wine has had partial whole bunch fermentation in 4 tonne open fermenters for a duration of 10 days on skins. The wine was then pressed off to 15% New French oak barrels and matured for 18 months prior to being racked for bottling. This wine has had no filtration.
The wine is ruby in color with purple hues. Brimming with bright fruit notes of wild strawberries & cherry and backed up by subtle spice of white pepper. On the palate, the fruit continues with further notes of raspberries and plum with a hint of French oak. A juicy medium bodied red that has a delicate and complex finish.
