Treasure Trove of McLaren Vale Grenache 2019

The Treasure Trove 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 two thirds of the fruit over whole bunches into open top fermenters.  After 7 days of fermentation the wine was basket pressed into French oak barrels, some 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.
