Winemaking notes

South Australia’s Barossa Valley has a global reputation for producing some of Australia’s and the world’s greatest full bodied red wines.  The Artisan Barossa Valley Grenache 2016 is an extraordinary example of how exceptional Barossa and this red variety can be. Blended from vines aged from 65-80 years old, hand picked and bunch sorted.  This parcel was destemmed only prior to fermentation in open top 2 and 3 ton fermenters.  The yeast was uninnocculated with some parcels having BM45 added at 7 baume.  Total time on skins was 10-14 days.  Via tank for 2 days to settle then racked to barrel which were all French oak aged 5-8 years for 16 months.  Cellar potential of 8+ years.

Colour

Bright and vibrant with a red brick hue

Nose

Earthy aromas as well as floral fruit and rose petal characters

Palate

Complex with layers of spice, cherry and ripe red fruits embraced lovingly by fine, velvety tannins.  The finish is long, smooth and delicious.

Reviews

94 points (5 stars) – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

It is sweetly perfumed on the nose showing mixed berry, plum, vanilla and cocoa aromas with hints of warm spice and floral. The palate is equally attractive with fleshy mouthfeel and silky texture, beautifully supported by fine, polished tannins. The wine is plump and fruit expressive, and offers excellent drinking.

93 points – Stephen Read, Wine Matrix

You know this is a big wine from the intense aromas of redcurrants, cherry, cedary cigar box along with a mintyness. At 15% ABV, it is medium bodied with chocolate, red fruit flavours with soft tannins, all in a complex balanced mouthfeel that finishes long and full. Enjoy now but will benefit from 10+ years careful cellaring.

92 points – Greg Swift, Wine Matrix 

Barossa Grenache keeps getting better. The wine has a deep and vigorous red hue with a floral nose dominated by rose petals and then restrained by typical Grenache earthiness. Save the best till last. It is lively on the palate, well constructed with balanced velvety tannins. Delicate and intricate with a long smooth finish.

91 points – Patrick Eckel

A light to medium red in the glass, the nose enjoys red cherry and plum fruits with a touch of spice and earth. Cherry and rhubarb fruits are up front with undergrowth, firmer black fruits and touch of anise on the mid to back palate. There is plenty of substance to the finish with dark cherry dominating with a bitter chocolate note providing contrast and final notes of lingering spice.
