K&L Notes

Grenache from Bethany and Marananga in the Barossa Valley. Wild fermented. 86% whole bunches. There’s a line of redcurrant and sweet raspberry, on both the nose and palate, but it quickly turns dry, smoky, almost sandy. This is an uncompromising style. Herb and spice notes, for sure, and a touch of dry licorice, but the prey, bunchy, simply dryness is the wine’s defining characteristic. It needs food as a result. But, in its style, it’s quite a lovely wine.

    I love that this winery was able to pull fruit from the Bethany vineyard, one of the oldest Grenache sites in the Barossa. The fruit is concentrated, yet light, and the high percentage of whole cluster lends a smoky note and some underlying steminess. A different, lighter take on Grenache that I enjoy as it doesn't overload you with juicy, ripe red fruits. It's more subtle and complex even if the label is not.
