2017 Spinifex Garçon Grenache

Old Vine Barossa Valley Grenache

2017 is just the second release of Garcon, a pure Grenache from vines in the Barossa (90%) and Eden Valleys (10%), our celebration of the variety from its spiritual home in Australia.
The three vineyards that provided the fruit for Garcon in 2017 are located in the extreme west (Moppa), north (Ebeneezer) and east (Springton) of the Barossa and are 55, 90 and 160 years of age respectively.   All are unirrigated and hand picked. 
All fruit was hand harvested and vinification was kept relatively simple.   Between 0-100% of bunches were retained and fermented as whole clusters, the balance as whole berries, in small open stainless steel fermenters (with indigenous yeasts) with maceration times being  between 8-30 days.  Elevage on light lees was undertaken in a selection of thick staved 600 L demi muids prior to blending and finishing in a 2500 L foudre.   Unfined and bottled without filtration 8 months after harvest.

Bright, deep ruby, blue hued hued.

High toned, mineral edged red and blue fruits lead to a savoury aromatic core of dried herbs, game and potters clay.  Pure but with a restrained rusticity. 

Youthful, mid-weight palate, bright spiced red cherry and ripe raspberry fruits on attack to turn to a slately, dried spice and cherry pit close.   Precise and focussed, fine sandy tannins and bright acids deliver drive and finish.
