Section 1819 - Grenache Shiraz - 2017
Greenock Barossa Valley,
A very pretty, bright wine with fresh strawberry and rhubarb characters supported by spices and elegant minerality. Vibrant fruit shown in all its glory without any oak influence. Grenache and Shiraz fermented separately and then blended and matured in 700L concrete eggs. 150 cases made.
‘Section 1819’ was the original survey name given to a 40 hectare parcel of undulating land which is now home to our beautiful vineyard.
Situated just outside the historic Barossa Valley township of Greenock and containing several hectares of very old Shiraz, Grenache, Mataro and Semillon vines, we’ve breathed new life into the old soil which in return, it has yielded up wines of outstanding quality.
A by-product of our biodynamic management practices has been the return to the farm of the elusive native Australian blue-banded bee, which features on our labels as a symbol of our commitment to working in harmony with nature to create fresh, vibrant wines from healthy vines.
