Manser 100 Year Old Vines Blewitt Springs Reserve Grenache 2022

Special Price $60.00 Regular Price $65.00
This is Grenache at its brilliant best, loaded with juicy red and blue fruits - full bodied with fine tannins and a long finish. Fabulous aromatics, fabulous structure, fabulous flavour. Exceptional and flagged by a good portion of the tasting panel as their wine of the year. Decant and enjoy now or squirrel away for 10 years.

Phil Manser has a long history in the wine industry championing boutique labels from all over Australia and the world. He has teamed up with his brother Kevin and father Bernie and now own and operate a vineyard near Kuitpo just a stone’s throw from McLaren Vale. This vineyard was first established by Tim James, formerly of Hardys and Wirra Wirra, and was planted to four different clones of Shiraz planted randomly throughout the vineyard. A time honoured practice from the old world designed to guarantee consistency and complexity from year to year. Fruit from this vineyard has made its way to numerous award-winning wines from several top tier producers.

Less than 40km south of Adelaide, McLaren Vale is another one of South Australia's renowned Shiraz producers, accounting for roughly 50% of grapes crushed annually. The climate is markedly different from the Barossa, being much more Mediterranean with four clear seasons and higher rainfalls. McLaren Vale reds reflect this, showing deep complexity and power along with the ability to cellar for decades. While Shiraz grabs the most attention, chocolate-rich Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays and Viogniers are worth sampling.

The climate is influenced by ocean breezes coming in from the Gulf of St. Vincent to the west and the altitude of the Sellicks Hill Range to the south. Soil type is varied, ranging from red-brown loam and sand to dark clay and the often-mentioned terra rosa. A misspell of the Italian phrase "terra rossa" (meaning "red soil"), this ruddy-red stuff is left behind when limestone breaks down, and any viticulturist will tell you it's great stuff to grow vines in due
