A parcel of Grenache was planted at the peak of the Calcareous Estate in 2014. Farmed in the traditional head-trained pruning style, the Grenache was bordered by rows of Mourvedre and Syrah. The grapes are picked together and co-fermented creating a wine that is 90% Grenache with 5% each of Syrah and Mourvedre. The wine was aged for 20 months in a combination of large concrete egg shaded tanks and 500L new French Oak puncheons. This is our first-ever bottling of wine produced from exclusively that site as well as aged in concrete. These factors and the resulting wine itself is what deemed this a Reserve tier wine.
