The Everest - Old Bush Vine Grenache 2015
Tasting Notes

Dense purple colour, the nose displays notes of blueberry, kirsch, marzipan and an intense licorice spice. The wine is incredibly dense and multi - layered yet still retains an elegance and softness as well as a textural purity that few wines can achieve.

Supple tannins from the gentle press merely complement the fruit, silky and rich yet impressively interwoven into the wine. The fruit/acid balance ensures excellent length and provides a purity of structure for long term ageing.

Winemaking

Fermented in French oak puncheons and hand plunged three times daily. Basket pressed and completed malolactic fermentation and 23 months maturation in new French oak hogsheads on lees to maintain structure and fruit profile. Minimum two years bottle maturation in our cellars before release. 

 

Reviews
95 Points and #1 Barossa Grenache of Vintage 2015
Review by: Huon Hooke
Deepish red colour with a subtle tinge of purple. The bouquet is very spicy and complex, and reveals substantial toasty oak, while the palate is rich and soft, full-bodied and velvet-smooth. It seems to have some small oak input. It's decadently rich, concentrated, dense and high in tannins, yet soft textured. Ideally, it needs more time and will richly reward cellaring. A stand-out. (18 months in new French oak. Unfiltered. 400 bottles produced) Drink 2021 to 2037
