Smalltown Vineyards The Songlines Grenache, Barossa Valley 2017

AMP060

Smalltown Vineyards (formerly Magpie Estate)

The ancient peoples of Australia navigated the vast emptiness of the continent using mind maps; instructions remembered in song and passed down the generations. A kind of pre-GPS TomTom. This enticing wine celebrates this near-lost tradition and the Barossa’s well-trodden red earth in its deep, warbling fruit, a very song of the soil.

Production

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.

Tasting notes

An juicy nose of cranberries, pomegranate and red pepper with hints of star anise and black pepper. The palate is a bright wash of berries and crushed grapes. An expressive, primary and bright Barossa Grenache.

Food match

The perfect match for herb infused grilled meat and ratatouille or pasta dishes.
