First Village Grenache 2017

The Grenache fruit is sourced from low yielding old bush vines which are hand pruned to 50-60 buds per vine. These old vines are grown on their own roots rather than grafted rootstock, naturally limiting the canopy growth and allowing for better fruit exposure to sunlight.

A long, gentle growing season combined with the natural cooling aspect of the Eastern Ridge of the Barossa Valley allowed our highly treasured and gnarled 50 – 80 year-old Grenache vines to produce fruit with wonderful levels of freshness and balance. The 2017 vintage was an overall a balanced, cooler vintage in the Barossa with a long ripening period which led to reds developing exceptional colour and tannic framework along with a deep fruit profile and aromatic intensity
