ALKINA Polygon 5 Grenache, Barossa Valley 2018

<h2>Alkina Polygon 5 Barossa Valley Grenache</h2> <p>The fruit for the Polygon 5 Grenache is sourced from vines planted on deeper, more schistous soils with rivets of iron-rich clay. Biodynamic, of course. Raspberry bon bon, pepper grind, lavender and thyme, as if an expression of a unique version of Australian garrigue. The tannins, burlier here, are swabbed with tapenade as they expand with air. For comparison’s sake, this is akin to a Châteauneuf on galets, rather than one on sand. A powerful wine juxtaposed against an uncanny lightness of being.</p> <p><a style="font-size: 16px; margin-top: 15px; white-space: normal; max-width: 100%;" href="/search?IncludeBuyNow=true&UId=17101&Brands=40302" target="_self" class="btn btn-lang-red">Explore Alkina &gt;&gt; </a></p>

Region Barossa Valley

Colonel William Light, the South Australian colony’s Surveyor-General, named the Barossa in 1837 after the site of an English victory over the French in the Spanish Peninsular War. In the mid-1800’s Silesian and English immigrants settled in the area. The Barossa itself comprises two distinct sub-regions: Eden Valley and the warmer Barossa Valley floor at 270m.The Barossa Valley enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate characterised by hot dry summers and relatively low rainfall. Cool sea breezes from the Gulf of St Vincent modify the temperature, however hot northerly winds can occasionally dominate creating considerable vine stress. Many older established vineyards are dry-grown, but supplementary irrigation is also extensively used. The valley is comprised of rich brown soils and alluvial sands. A long history of uninterrupted viticulture in the area means the Barossa valley is home to Australia’s largest concentration of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre with man

A long history of uninterrupted viticulture in the area means the Barossa valley is home to Australia’s largest concentration of old-vine Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre with many over 100 years old. Although most famous for Shiraz, the Barossa can also produce fragrant and deliciously fruity Grenache blends and beautifully rich, chocolatey Cabernet Sauvignons.
