Songlines Grenache 2017
This is a single vineyard Grenache. The grapes come from the Gomersal sub-region of the Barossa. Partly wild yeast fermented with around 30% whole bunches. Aged only in stainless steel to preserve a crunchy freshness.
An intriguing nose of leafy tomato compote with a chutney-esq depth of star anise and black pepper. The palate is a bright wash of berries, tomatoes (again) like a breezy allotment salad. It’s just a lovely, expressive, primary and pure experience of bright Barossa Grenache.
