INDIAN FILE GRENACHE
Nose: On the nose you get raspberries, fruit pastilles, cherry and floral notes with background spice and pepper.
Palate: To the palate there is fruit sweetness and a soft savoury tannin finish. Herbs and spices linger on the palate
About the wine: Sue and Jonathon Trott's Single Vineyard “Indian File” Grenache is from 80-year old dry-grown vines. The style is enriched and complexed 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!
Country: Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale, Australia
Grape Variety: Grenache
