Hewitson Ungrafted Grenache 2023


The wonderful old Grenache vines underpinning this beautiful wine from a beautiful vintage are more than 100 years old. Interesting technique. The fruit was whole bunch fermented in open vats for three weeks and then pressed to old French barriques for another nine months on lees. The approach in the winery has allowed the fruit to express itself without excessive tannin or oak influence. In fact, they are almost dormant in the background, although you know there is tannin support in there. Bursting with red fruits and life. Super wine.

Variety: Red Wine, Grenache
