Our Old Mate.

Grenache, unlike like the rain, was originally found mainly on the plains of Spain. In Australia, Grenache was considered a workhorse of the original varieties planted in Australia, mainly used in fortified wine production.  The Barossa is home to one of the world’s oldest Grenache vineyards, planted in 1850. These days, Grenache in Australia is finally recognised as a delicious table wine as a single varietal, but also forms the backbone of the classic GSM variety, or in our case, Grenache, Mourverdre and Shiraz. Barossa Grenache also makes a deliciously crisp, dry rosé which is the perfect match for hot Aussie summers by the water.

MT says; He is my old mate and he is there to help us share a laugh, a kiss and a smile. He wants to enrich our lives. When that new baby is born, those nuptials toasted or those new virgin warships eventually hit the water, in time, I would say it will be un-Australian not to have a fresh glass of brilliantly slurpable Grenache in your hand.


Aussie Grenache

In the glass, Australian Grenache can be light, medium or full bodied, depending on the clone, vineyard and winemaking preference. It has flavours of cherry, ripe raspberry with hints of white pepper, spice and an earthiness.  Pair a glass of slurpable Grenache with spicy curries, paella, pork belly pizza or a delicious cheese board!


2022 Brave Faces

2022 Brave Faces displays a nice red hue in the glass. The bouquet is very lifted and host a number of aromas, cloves, pepper, black raspberries, asian spice, warm oil along with candied flowers and backing spice.

“The palate starts out with a lean fruit profile first up, but this kicks into gear and starts to evolve and open. There is a lovely subtly here, which I happen to really enjoy and appreciate. The fruit is juicy, sweet and rolls deep into the late palate. The tannins are very fine, and that juice nature makes them caressing and very enjoyable. This year after year is always a great wine when served at the table, the soft acidity keeps the fruit bright and focused and then the tannins have a lovely mouth-watering feel that dry out the late palate and get you ready for some food. Another enjoyable vintage of our Brave Faces which will bring many smiles to whoever gets to enjoy this bottling.” – MT
