Chapel Hill Bush Vine 2012 Grenache

With its earthy textures, spicy undertones and perfumed flavours, this ethereal wine perfectly captures the spirit and history of McLaren Vale’s grape growing and winemaking heritage. Each vineyard parcel was hand harvested and then fermented separately in open fermenters for 10 to 12 days to facilitate a long slow gentle extraction. After basket pressing the free run and pressing fractions were combined together. The wine was coarsely racked and aged in 1 to 5 year old French oak hogsheads to encourage complexity, mouth feel and tannin integration whilst still preserving the varietal purity. To preserve purity and character, the wine is unfined, doesn’t have any tannin additions and is bottled unfiltered. Drinking window 2013-2018

A really gritty, earthy wine. Quite unique and complex. Pairs really well with food.
