Winemaking   2013 Clare vintage growing conditions were some of the  driest ever seen and resulted in an untypically early start to  vintage.  The vintage was compact and harvest conditions  were excellent with mild temperatures.  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 purple blue 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
