Faraway Tree of McLaren Vale Grenache 2020

The Faraway Tree of McLaren Vale Grenache is a part of our Firehawk Farm, a single biodynamically run vineyard perched atop an ancient ridge overlooking McLaren Vale the Willunga escarpment and the Gulf St Vincent.  Firehawk is our Native Bird of Prey that soars over our vineyards; acting as scarecrow to other birds, rabbits and the like that eat ripening grapes.

Selected bunches were handpicked by family and friends in early March.  We gently crushed half of the fruit over whole bunches into open top fermenters.  After 10 days of fermentation the wine was basket pressed into French oak barrels, a third new and the balance seasoned.  This was followed by 18 months maturation with minimal winemaking artefact before bottling, to capture the essence of the vineyard.  The wine will reward cellaring and decanting.

This wine is suitable for vegans.
