  • Variety

    Grenache
  • On the nose are lifted aromas of dark fruits, plums, mulberries with a hint of black cherries. Fresh soil is also apparent, with an underlying note of exotic Indian spice. The palate shows mulberries, black pepper and ripe plums, before a strong, lingering dark cherry spice meld with the more complex characters of quince paste, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Winemaking

Small batches of grapes are gently crushed and then transferred to five tonne headed down open fermenters. These batches remain separate until final blending. Foot treading is undertaken two thirds of the way through fermentation. The wine is then basket pressed and transferred to a mixture of old French and American oak barriques to complete fermentation. The barrel ferments are aged on lees, and there is no racking until final blending. The Bonsai Vine does not undertake fining or filtration prior to bottling.
