Winemaking  

2014 Clare vintage growing conditions started with above  average winter rains with a drier spring.  An early vintage   with mild days and cool nights at harvest time. 
Fruit quality was excellent and yield size slightly lower than  normal.  Flat View vineyard delivered exceptional parcels  with just under 2 tonnes picked of the regions total 88  tonnes of the variety that year.
Hand picked by the family from our old bush vines, the   Grenache was left to macerate for several days, before   being crushed and left on skins to draw out the rich colour.   Placed in older French barrels to ferment, and bottled with minimal filtration. 

Colour  

Deep rich raspberry colour.

Nose  

Blackcurrants and mulberries with a hint of cinnamon  spice.

Palate  

Spicy blackberries define the palate, with allspice  and chocolate adding to the rich cassis and blueberry lift.
Rich and complex, with a fine tannin structure and elegant  oak.

Food Pairing:  

Fragrant with a floral lift, this deep and serious red berry  Grenache pairs well with pork, duck and cured meats. 
Antipasti, oily pasta or chargrilled meats are ideal.

Huon Hooke – 26/10/2016 
Deep red colour with a purple rim. The bouquet is meaty  and charcuterie-like, full of interest and character, while the  palate is rich and concentrated, deep and dense with lots of  texture. Grip, muscle and fleshy extract aplenty. This is a real  mouthful of wine, very satisfying. Drink 2017 to 2028
