    A Fistful of Fancy Grenache
    Wines In This Pack
    Eden Valley, SA
    96pts Sam Kim, 96pts James Halliday
    Bush vine Grenache from the revered Stonegarden vineyard which was planted in 1858. This was wild fermented using 100% whole bunches, after which the wine spent time on lees in old French oak for 12 months. Exceptional poise and depth of flavour, velvety fruit, fine boned acidity, slightly grainy tannins and a very long finish. Magnificent.
    1 x Curtis Limited Grenache 2020 (RRP $100.00)
    McLaren Vale, SA
    96pts Kim Brebach, 96pts Sam Kim
    Generously fruited and well-structured Grenache made from 100-year-old vines. Plenty of black and blue fruits, plenty of cedar, and fine tannins. Length and intensity are excellent.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    95pts Huon Hooke, 95pts Sam Kim, 94pts Kim Brebach, 92pts The Real Review
    Produced from 120-year-old bush vines, this is an exceptionally concentrated wine. Dark fruits are bolstered with red as the wine straddles the line between confection and good black stuff and the wine finishes with super fine tannins. Superb.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    A relatively big and rich Grenache offering red fruits, woodsmoke and lavender on the nose. The palate is full, loaded with blackberries, red fruits, savoury aspects and herbs. Needs decanting or cellaring.
    McLaren Vale, SA
    93pts Kim Brebach, 92pts Sam Kim, 92pts James Halliday
    From old bush vines planted in 1947. Dry grown, hand pruned and picked, these vines produce exceptionally concentrated fruit. White pepper, kirsch and cherries in a medium bodied yet muscular and fruit intense setting. Plenty of fine tannins to finish. Drink now or cellar for 5-8 years.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts Sam Kim
    The Lienert’s have been farming in the Barossa for 150 years and decided to add some vines to their property about 20 years ago. The first fruit from 2004 and 2005 vintages went straight to the pool room, aka into Penfold’s St Henri. Funnily enough they then planted a lot more vines and introduced many more clonal variations of Shiraz and Grenache. This Grenache is a brilliant amalgam of fragrance and grunt, thanks to the careful clonal selection and extensive blending trials undertaken before settling on the final ‘just right blend’. Whilst called Sieben Klon (Seven Clones) the Grenache actually includes 8 separate clones... as follows. BVRC38 – This is one of the nursery clones and has proved to be a great backbone, a bit of a goldilocks, Just right. Lovely red fruits, balance, mid weight and acidity. Simple and clean, not overly complex but blends well with everything... 30% of this clone was whole bunch fermented. Vine Vale Ancestor 1854 – This one is a bit more beastly, darker fruit spectrum and fuller richer palate, still plenty of subtlety but with some beautiful earthen tones. McLaren Vale High Sands – Without picking favourites this one is a beauty, lifted aromatics, mid weight, fine tannins, complex and saline edge, ocean mist. Ethereal Greenock Moppa Selection – Cuttings were taken from the Moppa foothills behind the town of Greenock. This clone is quite unique in its structure as well as noticeably darker colour than most, while still retaining a vibrant fruit character. Ebenezer Selection –This clone is elegant and complex, with a finely tuned tannin profile and lifted red fruit. Langhorne Creek Selection– This clone retains wonderful acidity and has a piercing fruit and aromatic profile, the odd one out as picked much earlier ~1.5-2 weeks before the others. Krondorf Selection– High end lifted fragrance and bouncy jubey fruit, as well as an underlying savouriness which rounds out the palate nicely.
