    From the best block of Grenache in Australia! Adjacent to Yangarra’s High Sands plot, this biodynamic vineyard was planted in the 1940s on maslin “sand” soils. It is made with ‘no frills’ (whole berries, no oak, no stems, hand-plunged) by McLaren’s rockstar of Grenache Pete Fraser. We call it our Chambolle of the Vale! "These 60+ yo biodynamically grown bush vines are cared for by Pete Fraser and we bought a couple of tons of beautiful hand-picked bunches. I originally wanted a “super hero” label but the wine, made in a very traditional and organic way, is far too good and needed a “fitting” label. Bottled to capture the wild berries and rose petals, this wine should age gracefully for decades!


    In just 30 minutes drive from Adelaide CBD you will find yourself in the heart of McLaren Vales vineyards. It has a rich, vinous history that harks back to the mid-1800s and its Mediterranean climate and diversity of soil types are perfect for an enviable array of grape varieties. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon are well suited, as are the many white and red Italian varieties that ‘end with o’ but the star of the show is undisputedly Grenache and Australia’s finest examples come from the old bush-vines that dot the sandy, rolling hills of ‘The Vale’. Producers such as Yangarra, S.C. Panell, Toby Bekkers, Aphelion and Willunga 100 produce excellent examples and a few producers such as Jauma and Ochota Barrels swoop down from the Adelaide Hills to take advantage of the regions incredible Grenache resources. Local Knowledge: A visit to the mind-boggling Cube at d’Arenberg and a beer at the Victory Hotel and you’ll be in a happy place. Willunga Farmers Markets is a beauty too.
