2022 Amphora Grenache

2022 Amphora Grenache




The 2022 Amphora Grenache is made from fruit sourced from gnarly 120 year old bush vines. We were excited to work with a vineyard that has witnessed so much McLaren Vale history. Maturing the wine in Amphora has captured the pure essence of the fruit. Breathe in aromas of stewed strawberries and blood oranges with flavours of grilled plum and raspberries flowing onto a beautiful strawberry finish.

This wine has been aged in Amphora Terra Cotta, imported from Italy, and made from special porous clay that allows the wine to breathe correctly as it is ageing. This micro-oxygenation causes the wine to soften as it matures and develops, without any oak flavours influencing the wine. The result is a true expression of the fruit being achieved in the finished wine. The clay also has anti-microbial properties to help protect the wine as it ages.

The amphora itself is a spectacular work of art. Its elegance is measured, its authority understated, its sophistication effortless. A grand wine.
