The Stonegarden Grenache is from one of the oldest vineyards in Australia dating back to 1858. This Grenache is from the original bush-vine planting with a total area of 8.5Ha planted at 2.4m x 2.4m vine spacing. While predominantly Grenache the block also contains Mataro and Shiraz and is usually the last parcel of fruit to be harvested in the Eperosa vintage. The wine is remarkably powerful and complex while sitting in a bright, distinctly Grenache profile. Aroma’s of ruby-red grapefruit, cherry, oregano, provincial herbs, iron-ferrous, meatiness, stalk and spice. A delicate and persistent palate of ruby-red fruits, pepper and spice with tannins that are super fine yet mouth filling and subtly powerful.
