Lost Buoy - Forgotten IDA Grenache - 2016
McLaren Vale, South Australia
Hidden from history and unable to share its story, Grenache, like the brig IDA wrecked on Port Willunga beach in 1857 was forgotten, hidden in blends or fortified.
Today like the remains of IDA revealed by the waves that crash onto shore, McLaren Vale Grenache is being rediscovered for its fragrance, character and unique reflection of local terroir. A once off for the Lost Buoy portfolio, Forgotten IDA Grenache is light crimson in colour, generous raspberry and rhubarb tart bouquet with subtle fruit sweetness and creamy but textured palate.
This wine is really something exciting to showcase the potential of McLaren Vale Grenache.
