Curtis Small Batch Grenache Shiraz McLaren Vale 2021


The Grenache was sourced from 120-year-old vines, destemmed and cold-soaked for 14 days. Fermentation was over the following two weeks in a mix of new and two-year-old French oak. The Shiraz came from 80-year-old vines and received similar winemaking treatment, with the exception of American oak, not French. A vibrant dark crimson colour. Chocolate, dark fruits, coffee grinds, warm earth and bay leaves. A ripe style exhibiting quality fruit, with everything in balance plus silky tannins and very good length. The finish sees the emergence of more fresh cherry notes. Delicious and enjoy over the next eight to twelve years.
