The Château Single Vineyard Grenache 2022
$40.00 / bottle
This Grenache is hand-picked from select rows of the Hueppauff (pronounced ‘hip-off’) family vineyard neighbouring the Château Tanunda estate.
Partial whole-bunch fermentation is followed by gentle basket pressing and 12 months maturation in seasoned French oak puncheons.
A full bodied wine with aromas of blackberry, plum and white pepper supported by spicy, dark berry fruits and rich dark chocolate on the palate. The extensive finish is framed by elegant, fine-grained tannins.
SUITABLE FOR VEGANS AND VEGETARIANS
Dave Brookes, Halliday Wine Companion
Barossa Valley grenache, partial whole-bunch and 12 months maturation in old French oak puncheons. Light crimson with ginger spiced red and dark plum fruits with hints of dried meats, jasmine and orange blossom, dried citrus fruits, earth and licorice. Medium-bodied with fine, sandy tannins and a bright disposition finishing savoury and spicy with a plume of pure red fruits. Great drinking.
Wild and pretty red showing sliced strawberries, pomegranates, white pepper and roasted herbs on the nose. It’s juicy and lively, with a medium to full body and a peppery finish. Drink now or hold.
This 2022 Grenache jumps out of the blocks with its perfumed cranberry and raspberry aromas plus a dusting of dried herbs from some whole bunch ferments. Bit of tension to follow, the stalky influences quite strong before dark cherry and spicy flavours join the party. Holds its shape to finish well so should hold for a while.
How good is it to see Grenache having a moment? Working its way back into the drinker’s good books has also taken Barossa Grenache into new territory: less heavy and high alcohol-ed and more lively and expressive. Try this super aromatic and peppery embodiment of the grape and try not to be impressed. Black pepper, lavender florals, maraschino cherry, plum, vanilla, juniper aromas – it’s chockful of Grenache good stuff. Lingers and entices as it sets about on a lively trip across the tastebuds, peppery with a touch of eucalypt leaf amid red and black berries, vanilla and light confection notes. Offers good depth of flavour in tune with lively, fine tannins.
