Kellermeister Rocamora Ancestor Vine Grenache, Eden Valley
Grapes vinified from one of the world's oldest Grenache vineyards planted circa 1868 at the Stonegarden Vineyard, Eden Valley. Matured in 100% fine French oak for two years and bottled unfiltered and unfined.
A field blend planted in 1858 including 10% Shiraz and Mataro. Hand-picked, crushed and destemmed, fermented in an open oak vat, 12 days on skins, 24 months in used French oak. Nigh-on perfect winemaking. It's supple, with plum and cherry flavours and superfine tannins.
