“Named after the beautiful old Bush Vine Grenache vineyard owned by mates of mine in McLaren Vale. The Grenache component in this wine is hand picked to best preserve this glorious old vineyard. We have been taking fruit from this block for many years and it’s one of our favourites.” – Geoff Merrill
The colour is a dark red with good depth. Immediately from the glass comes a bright ripe cherry note with spice, earth and raspberry. The palate is well balanced and perfectly weighted for this medium bodied blend style.
Clean red fruits and berries come forward with complex herbs and spice appearing on the finish. Smooth tannins and overall mouthfeel are complemented by the subtle acidity on the finish, ensuring a very food friendly and drinkable wine.
