Grenache and Friends

Stephen’s love affair with Grenache began in the mid 90s when he first arrived in McLaren Vale.  A fondness developed for making medium bodied wines from the warm, Mediterranean climate of ‘the Vale’ and this lead Stephen to work with Grenache. Twenty years on and Stephen is still producing outstanding single site Grenache and Grenache blends
Here we focus on three different blends; similar by variety yet strikingly different


2018 GRENACHE SHIRAZ TOURIGA – We should just call it the Purple One from now on. It’s our Swiss army wine that goes with anything

2018 THE VALE – This old vine Grenache Shiraz is our wine of place and it couldn’t come from anywhere else but ‘The Vale’

2017 GRENACHE SHIRAZ – Though world class as a varietal wine, Grenache has always had a natural affinity with Shiraz and when blended forms a unique yin and yang relationship, particularly in McLaren Vale
