This Grenache is produced from two 100+ year old vineyards from the renowned Barossa Valley.
Vincent is a charismatic character, just like his maker. It bucks the trend of big, sweet, oaky Barossa Grenache and sits firmly in the bright, cheery and gluggable camp. Part whole bunches (20%) give it a lifted perfume and silky texture, while the use of older French oak and stainless steel ensure this is a lot brighter and bouncier than many of its Barossa counterparts. No added yeasts or Malolactic fermentation. The wine is open fermented, and basket pressed.
The Vincent offers inviting aromas of rich fruit and soft white pepper. The palate; rich with intensity, yet delicately rounded. The generous mouth feel denotes its aging in barrel, a third in 15-year French oak, a third in 86-year old 2,200 liter vats, and the remaining third is matured in stainless steel tanks. The wine aged for a total of 12 months. The Vincent is a superb Grenache that displays lifted fruit aromas and has a lingering finish. A wine that can be enjoyed now or well into the future.
“The Vincent is a thank you to my father who has passed eight generations of Italian winemaking and grape growing knowledge down to the ninth”.
