This vineyard was planted in 1925 in the conventional bush vine manner with no trellising. The vineyard is very steep and faces due east, the soils contain high levels of ironstone, rock and quartz. This is the highest part of the Blewitt Springs Vineyard and also the lowest yielding, about one tonne to the acre. The grapes are handpicked, usually quite early in the season, due to very low crops and the ability of Old Grenache to ripen.

Wild and more than a little gamy, an irreverent wine that flaunts its animal, almost feral qualities, finally tying them up with smooth, bright cherry and berry fruit that emerges on the generous finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. 1,000 cases made.

Aromas are fruit-sweet one minute, and dark and earthy the next. Offers thick, pulpy tannins on the tongue, with fruit that glows red, then purple. Medium-long on the finish; this is an excellent, very compelling Grenache. Will show its best in 2-3 years.
