2015 KENNEDY Barossa Valley Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre
Deep crimson in colour this wine is bursting with ripe cherry, plum, sweet spice and red liquorice aromas. A complex blend of palate flavours are supported by soft, velvety tannins all finishing with a savoury undertone.
All 3 varieties were hand harvested and fermented separately. To aid colour, tannin and flavour extraction most parcels were fermented warm, with temperatures reaching 30oC. The Grenache and Mourvedre parcels were macerated on skins for 10-20 days before being pressed straight to seasoned oak hogsheads and puncheons for maturation. These parcels were then barrel maturated for 16 months without racking on full press solids, then naturally clarified, blended and bottled.
