Head Wines Old Vine Grenache 2014



The Barossa Old Vine Charter declares Old Vine to be anything 35 years or older. This is that, and more, being 73 years old and from a vineyard near Krondorf.  20% whole bunch and spent 12 months in a 20 year old 2500L foudre. So many numbers, and luckily they all add up to something great.

Sweet cherries and raspberry, spice, smoked meat, peanuts in their shells, dried flowers and a pleasant kind of sweatiness. Light to medium bodied, confusingly feels succulent and bony at the same time, has a gentle sweetness of red berry fruit, yet a dry stony texture to its fine grained tannin. Lovely clean length. Complex. Light on its feet. Beautiful to drink. It’s how you make Grenache sing.  Rated : 95 Points.  Drink : 2015 - 2026+.  Gary Walsh.   www.winefront.com.au
