2014 "Indian File" Grenache
2014 "Indian File" Grenache
Blewitt Springs Single Vineyard

With ripe berry fruit enhanced and enriched by whole bunch fermentation. This is a complex, savoury style similar to a cool-climate Pinot Noir. Perhaps James Irvine was right many years ago when he called McLaren Vale Grenache the Pinot d ‘Fleurieu!
