The Exquisite Grenache 6 Pack

6 amazing Grenache. 2 vintages of Heirloom Alcala- one of which won the Decanter Trophy as best Grenache in the world, plus the 21 vintage Alcala which Halliday scored 95. Both are magnificent. There’s Dandelion’s Treasure Trove Grenache which the Halliday Wine companion describes as having both sublime fruit and (a supportive) structural latticework. There’s Brothers at War Peacekeeper Grenache which was just pipped for a trophy at the Adelaide Wine Show. Also, Kilikanoon’s magnificent 1946 plantings Walton’s Grenache, a $96 a bottle, full throttle stunner, and finally the Lienert Sieben Klon Grenache – the Grenache us windirecties have ordered more of to take home than any other this year. This is the best Grenache pack we’ve ever put together.

    6 x Gold Medal, 1 x Trophy - Best Grenache in the World at Decanter Wine Awards
    Another incredible Alcala Grenache – which has just picked up the Decanter World Wine Awards Grenache of the Year Trophy. First in a field of 89 entries from all over the world. Ripe plush fruits of strawberry and cherry without a hint of jamminess eats perfectly cedary French oak and gives you back this perfectly balanced and engaging, world-class wine.
    Clare Valley, SA
    Gold Medal, 94pts James Halliday
    An absolute stunner sourced from a 77 year old vineyard, with the fruit spending over a year in French 500L puncheons. Red fruits, plum, five spice and wonderfully savoury cedar. Exceptionally concentrated and intense. Worth decanting as the wine grows in stature as it breathes. An absolute pleasure to drink.

    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.

    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.
    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 Gold Medal, 95pts Sam Kim, 93pts Kim Brebach, 93pts James Halliday, 96pts Melbourne International Wine Competition
    A wonderful Grenache with a little age. New school bright fruit and exceptionally deftly placed tannins meet high-quality, old-school oak. Ned Goodwin from the Halliday Wine Companion wrote a year ago ‘too much mocha-vanilla-infused oak enshrouding this, the fruit and structural latticework beyond it is sublime, auguring well for future change... Raspberry bon-bon, thyme, orange zest and lavender. The acidity, juicy and palpably natural. The grape tannins, lithe and etched with grace... I score this with the promise to which I hold it.’ A year later and this wine’s time has arrived, it is a ripper!
