2022 Vanguardist Grenache McLaren Vale

From: $60.00

2022 Vanguardist Grenache McLaren Vale – The Vanguardist range represents the epitome of what they are about. Pushing the realms of standard winemaking to deliver intrigue, excitement and utmost quality… without any loss of sense of place. Ultimate dedication to the craft of viticulture and winemaking, encapsulated in a bottle – through their lens.

The Grenache used in crafting this wine originates from the magical ‘Silver Sands’ vineyard in Blewitt Springs, a hidden gem planted over 50 years ago by Robert Rende and his father, Michael. This vintage is the eighth release of this wine and the viticulture is now fully managed by Michael J Corbett.

This release marks a significant milestone, as for the first time, they’ve extended the wine’s release to 24 months – a goal long held and now achieved. The key to this two-year cycle lies in the wine’s second winter spent in large format oak (Foudre), followed by bottling at the point when the cellar temperature becomes perfect for bottling. This extended period allows for additional bottle aging before its official release in March 2024.

Medium bodied style, lots of red berry goodness – strawberries and raspberries, nice amount of herbs in the mix too. Tannins are fine and guide the wine. Minerally/stony feel. Long and engaging finish. Just excellent.

Limited to just 250 dozen bottles, approximately half the production of the 2021 vintage, this wine stands as a testament to their commitment to quality.
