This old vine site is located in Kangarilla and was planted in 1945.
Kangarilla township and vineyard location is the lowest lying altitude of the 3 sub districts we source - offering a unique balance of complexities - long lived wines are typical of this area.
The top soil composition is gravelly clay that sits atop a deep limestone subsoil layer. It is a generally flat landscape.
The extra soil moisture levels associated with the clays offer the vines year round, annual replenishment and trademark high natural acidity results. These vines are otherwise dry grown however the rich clay encourages yields that are slightly higher than other old vine Grenache vineyards.
Â The Kangarilla Grenache ages very slowly due to the high acid/low pH and is one of the prettiest, regional expressions offering a singleÂ vineyard signature of bright red fruit and a confectionary or cosmetic element.
