Vineyard Ashmead family vineyard, Greenock, Barossa Valley
Soil lean soils of red and brown clay mixed with some lighter sandy loams
Season grenache was as happy as ever in the ripening season for 2022 as we avoided any issues at flowering. We were lucky to receive only a touch of hail which the vines stood up to well. The 2022 vintage was a long and pleasant ride!
Winemaking Tiny volumes of Grenache from our 2021 crush meant a 2-tonne bin was our vessel for ferment. Plunged gently throughout fermentation with around 20% whole bunch inclusion. Rested in seasoned French oak for malolactic fermentation and further time on lees.
Maturation 8 months in seasoned French oak puncheons
Winemaker Comments the old vine Grenache was hand harvested and upon arrival at the winery we added 18% whole bunch to the open fermenter then destemmed the remaining fruit on top. Carignan (11%) was co-fermented. Rested in seasoned French oak for malolactic fermentation and further time on lees.
