Rated 95 Halliday points. "In 1996, 18 rows of 100-year-old grenache were converted onto a modern trellis as an experiment; that move, coupled with this great vintage, and the special quality of McLaren Vale grenache (as opposed to other SA regions) has resulted in this superb blend of red and black cherry fruit given texture and length by fine, savoury tannins." James Halliday Wine Companion - October 2015

Background

This Grenache is a single vineyard parcel, intensely flavoured and full of vibrant colour.

A viticultural icon from old stock to modern trellis, long may Penny's Hill Grenache thrill the senses.
