Just Exceptional Grenache v3.0
This is the 3rd reworking of our most successful Grenache pack ever. The reboot sees us lose the lovely Z Wine GSM, a trophy winner with an rrp of $45, replacing that with Heirloom’s Halliday 95 pointed, $80 a bottle, 2021 Alcala Grenache. This #3 edition will no doubt rocket out the door even faster than #2.

McLaren Vale, SA
96pts Wine Pilot, 95pts James Halliday, 93pts Real Review
What a stunner- crunchy redcurrants, raspberries, white pepper, and cherries in a generously textural setting, supported by cleansing acidity and framed by fine tannins. Medium bodied but powerfully fruited, this is an exceptional Grenache.
2 x Lone Palm Vineyards Old Vine Grenache 2022 (RRP $60.00)
Barossa Valley, SA
Serious, old vines Grenache this- with a degree of intensity you don’t always find in Grenache. As with the incredible first vintage which sold out in just a few months, the 22 is bolstered with the inclusion of some powerful, low yielding, old vine Shiraz. The tannins are plentiful and savoury, the fruits black, flecked with reds and tightly coiled. Needs decanting, Officially awesome!
2 x Lienert Vineyards Sieben Klon Grenache 2021 (RRP $50.00)
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 Brothers at War Peacekeeper Grenache 2022 (RRP $38.00)
Barossa Valley, SA
Gold Medal, 95pts James Halliday
Sourced from 3 incredible vineyards, one of which is 150 years of age, this exceptional Grenache is then fermented in a mix of ceramic eggs and large format French oak foudres. Lifted red fruit and florals pass the baton to a palate offering raspberries, cranberries and pomegranate. The fruit intensity is excellent and well matched by firm acidity. The finish comes slowly, traversing as it does a lengthy pathway of fine tannins.
2 x Watkins Langhorne Creek Symmetry GSM 2021 (RRP $26.00)
