Clandestine Vineyards #1 Grenache 2016 Red Wine – McLaren Vale, Australia
Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale, South Australia.
Hand-picked, basket pressed with 10% whole bunch, racked into large old French oak hogs heads and 10% of the original pressings blended prior to bottling.
Bright, brooding array of mixed fruits that start with cherries and raspberries, but move like a freight train through the palate, gathering momentum that piles on forest fruits and black olive intensity. All that fruit is held together with brilliant acidity and soft tannins.
Minimal filtration, vegan fined and minimal sulphur on bottling to keep the wine fresh and lively.

About Clandestine Vineyards
The Clandestine Vineyards project holds the key to locked away secrets. With fruit sourced from some of the most exceptional, yet difficult to access sites in South and Western Australia, paired with the perfect winemaker, each hand-picked with the same discretion as the fruit itself. Tied to no one location, GI, or house style, we create extraordinary wines from unplundered fruits that lay beyond the reach of most.
