Grenachier Than Thou!

This pack is definitely Grenachier than you. That said, after you’ve ingested the contents, you’ll be a little closer to the perfection of this pack. Something we can all aspire to. There’s some seriously heavy hitting Grenache in this pack. The Mad Hatter, a 95 point Barossa blend made by Phil Lehmann (son of Peter), Turkey Flat’s twin gold winner, Sieben Klon’s 95 point beauty from former Penfolds grape growers, Sieger Estate’s 94 point Old Vine Barossa, the Curtis’ Limited 96 point, 100 year old vine jobby and the crunchy, fragrant and red fruited Curtis Heritage. All up $590 worth for just $250, and we love ‘em all.

    Wines In This Pack
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts Sam Kim, 93pts Wine Pilot
    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.
    2 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
    93pts Sam Kim, 91pts Wine Pilot
    A beautifully fragrant Grenache packed to the gunnels with bright and delicious red fruits, spice and lip tingling acidity. Awesome with a range of savoury dishes, especially crispy pork.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    Rich, ripe, smooth and instantly appealing with black plum, cedar, spices and chocolate. Just full bodied, but with plenty of lushness, this is super easy to drink.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    95pts Kim Brebach, 94pts Sam Kim
    A truly beautiful and fruit driven blend of Grenache, Mataro and Shiraz. The Grenache here brings spice, confected notes, raspberries, rhubarb and sour cherry. The Mataro offers chocolate, brooding brambles and other slightly angry things sourced from dungeons deep. The Shiraz brings blue and black fruits, chocolate and fine, fine tannins. It’s a mad mélange this, one we’ll tip our hat to, whilst asking for it to be filled.
    Barossa Valley, SA
    2 x Gold Medals, 94pts James Sucking, 93pts James Halliday
    A beautifully soft, savoury and complex red. Lots of red and black fruits, chocolate, plums, herbs, cloves and fine tannins. A lovely ‘welcome home’ glass which goes very nicely with dinner too.
