Smallfry LadyBird Old Vine Grenache
Current Vintage: 2017
Savoury nose with brooding fruit, eucalypt and fennel. Fruit showing here of the fresh forest variety, strong tannin wrapped up in a cashmere like oak blanket. Long, goes on forever.
Home to some of the oldest grapevines on planet Earth, theBarosesa Valleyis perhaps Australia's most renowned wine region. In 1842, German settlers planted vines and the rest is history!
On the red wine front, it's all about the big reds like Cabernet and Shiraz here - with full bodied Barosesa Shiraz being sought out around the world. It is rich, muscular, and super sexy - Aussie 'ocker with distinctive finesse.
But the Barosesa isn't a one trick pony. In a salute to the region's rich German heritage, the Eden Valley (which falls within the broader region) produces some of Australia's finest rieslings - crisp, fresh, but still balanced.
