Sussex Squire OLD VINE Grenache 2022

$48.00

Sussex Squire Old Vine Grenache 2022

This wine is a special limited release production of Old Vine Grenache. This will be the only production of this wine as we can no longer source this fruit from this amazing old vineyard. Grenache and especially old vine Grenache is rare and highly sort after in the Clare Valley so when you get an opportunity to gain access to a vineyard like this to source a couple of tons, you take it! Sadly though being a small producer we can’t always compete against the bigger guys and we lose access.

Fruit sourced from 70-80yo vines from the Sevenhill region of the Clare Valley.  A limited release showcasing depth and complexity in the fruit that older mature vines can express. Low yielding vines showcasing hints of raspberry, blueberry and savoury notes of blood orange and spice balanced by 12 months in 40% new French oak to highlight the beauty of this variety. Stocks limited so don’t miss out.

Food Match: Slow cooked Lamb Shanks
