David Franz – 2016 Grenache Grenache Noir

$25.00 inc. GST

The 2016 Grenache Noir is a Single Vineyard Wine created from 1923 Planted Grenache vines grown on our ‘Stonewell Hill’ Vineyard. It is my first ‘go’ at making Grenache into a style we affectionately call Barossa Pinot. Amongst the group of larrikins I affectionately call mates, the oft tounge in cheek quoted saying ‘Friends dont let friends drink Pinot’ now has an out… with ‘but you can drink Grenache made like Pinot…’

Stonewell Grenache 1923 Block /


Brilliant Garnet Red


Raspberries and strawberries with hints of plum underpinned with spicy savory darkness.


A deceptively full palate exhibiting rich bright full summer fruits and spicy complexity. Lovely lilting balance between silky tannins bright acid  and a lengthy slightly spicy finish.


I’ve chosen to call this little beauty Grenache Noir as it encompasses my first steps in a quest to capture €˜Burgophile€™ sensibilities from Old Vine Barossa Grenache. While some have chosen a heavier expression for this variety, our 1923 plantings on light sandy loam sing a more aromatic song. 30% Whole bunch gentle thrice daily hand plunging and extended skin maceration before 12 months in seasoned oak has ensured that every ounce of delight has been captured. The final flourish for this baby is an illustration by my wife Nicki. Quirky as hell but totally appropriate!

The liquid offerings of Barossa gold.

Unique small batch parcels of Barossa wine; hand wrought with passion to your glass from our vines. As you may have gathered, I am very passionate about the fruit I produce and wines I make. You can savour my wines in the knowledge that they have been nurtured first for a year on the vines then crafted for a few months in the winery before 4 years maturation in wood and the bottle. Each bottle of wine is carefully hand printed and wrapped before being placed in a hand printed carton then sent out into the wide world to find their way to you.
