2019 Dodgy Bros Juxtaposed Old Vine Grenache McLaren Vale – A blend of two vineyards from the north-east end of McLaren Vale. Fruit was harvested from Bernard Smart’s vineyard in Clarendon (planted in 1921), and the Wait family vineyard in Blewitt Springs (planted in 1942). The fruit was handpicked, crushed and destemmed. Ferments were handled gently with no additions, pressed into very old oak hogshead barrels on completion of primary fermentation and left on fine lees for elevage. The wines were not fined or filtered.
A lighter, prettier style then the 2018 but just as impressive. Think red berry fruits with a good mix of blackberry and cherry. A nice dusting of spice, dried herbs and a touch of earthiness. Medium bodied with a brilliant web of tannin that really pulls you into the glass. Crisp acidity and great length of flavour round of another excellent release of this magnificent Grenache.
Fun wines, made with fun labels, created by some fun guys!
