Winemaking

2013 Clare vintage growing conditions were some of the driest ever seen and resulted in an untypically early start to vintage. The vintage was compact and harvest conditions were excellent with mild temperatures. Flat View vineyard delivered exceptional parcels with just under 2 tonnes picked of the regions total 88 tonnes of the variety that year. Hand picked by the family from our old bush vines, the Grenache was left to macerate for several days, before being crushed and left on skins to draw out the rich colour. Placed in older French barrels to ferment, and bottled with minimal filtration. Colour Deep purple blue colour. Nose Blackcurrants and mulberries with a hint of cinnamon spice. Palate Spicy blackberries define the palate, with allspice and chocolate adding to the rich cassis and blueberry lift. Rich and complex, with a fine tannin structure and elegant oak. Food Pairing: Fragrant with a floral lift, this deep and serious red berry Grenache pairs well with pork, duck and cured meats. Antipasti, oily pasta or chargrilled meats are ideal. Cellar 2025
