Smart to source 60+yo bushvine grenache from Blewitt Springs (75%), with added complexity ex 13% Barossa Valley shiraz and 12% McLaren Vale mataro, all open-fermented, hand-plunged and matured in used French hogsheads. Bright, full colour, the bouquet very fragrant and fruity, the medium-bodied palate supple and very long, red and purple fruits holding sway throughout, the tannins fine and soft, the oak barely perceptible. Lovely wine, now or in 20 years.
