John Duval Annexus Grenache 2015
The 2015 vintage started with a warmer than usual spring followed by early, but even, flowering and fruit-set. Frost, particularly in the Northern Barossa reduced yields however the conditions during fruit ripening were pleasingly mild and dry with rain in mid-January brining some welcome relief. Grenache was picked on 16th from the Northern Barossa and the 25th of March from Eden Valley.
Colour: Bright purple red.
Nose: Vibrant red fruit aromatics complexed by red roses and savoury spice.
Palate: Fine and long, delicate yet carrying impressive purity and flavour intensity. An array of ripe red fruits, dark cherry and raspberry fill the palate finishing with hints of clove, dusty earth and velvety tannins
