SINGLE VINEYARD
Rusty Plough Grenache (6 bottles per case)

There was a time when traditional weed control in vineyards involved ploughing the soil  relentlessly to dust. In the late ‘70s, Richard Morton decided that this didn’t make any sense and stopped.

Today the rows have a wonderful grassy swath and the extra organic matter and cooling effect on the vineyard helps our Grenache thrive. If you listen carefully, the ploughs can be heard peacefully rusting away on a quiet day, perhaps in reverence to this fantastic wine.



TASTING NOTES

Aromas and flavours of blackcurrant jubes, berry fruit, cherries, earth and spice abound on the nose and palate. Older oak hogsheads were used for gentle maturation so as to allow the natural fruit flavour and aromas to develop.

Enjoy now or cellar for 7-10 years to release its full potential.
