Seppeltsfield Grenache 2016

Fruit sourced from the Great Terraced Vineyard on the Western ridge of the Barossa, these “gnarled bush vines” are some 60-80 years of age and planted among “ironstone, bluestone and quartz scattered soils.” If that doesn’t start floating your Barossa Grenache boat, you’re not really a sailor!

Seppeltsfield, Grenache, Barossa Valley, 2016

The 1888 gravity  flow cellar is mentioned on the label and also with a graphical representation  on the back. Love the working history.
Sees no oak, the fruit is so bright, yet dark and concentrated. Like a hyper dark choc raspberry bullet it shoots through the mid palate and holds all in tight regardless of the alcohol.  There’s spice, there’s flowers,  there’s plummy and grapey flavours, there’s smoky chalkiness, there’s virginal Barossa grenache deliciousness. Make no mistake, this is a slurpable customer and will invoke cries from even the staunchest maven of “ooooooooh I like that!”
