Vineyard

The 2018 Seppeltsfield Barossa Grenache is the result of an evolution of the estate's prized Great Terraced Vineyard. The vineyard lies on the Western boundary of the Seppeltsfield estate itself and is planted in contoured rows. The vineyard includes blocks of Shiraz and Palomino, however the majority is gnarly, thick-trunked Grenache. The harvest of Grenache once solely fed Seppeltsfield's Tawny (fortified) wines, however a new perspective of retaining parcels of lighter, brighter fruit for a varietal still wine is now being employed. This is achieved through selection of blocks and rows on the mid and lower levels of the vineyard, which are less exposed and moderated by cooling gully breezes. The vineyard is entirely bush-vine planted (no wire trellis or posts) which dictates only hand pruning and hand picking.

Winemaking

The 2018 Barossa Grenache is crafted in a 'joven' style - released young and without oak maturation. The Grenache was vinified through the historic 1888 Gravity Cellar. Built into the hillside on a series of terraces, gravity guides the flow of fruit down through the winery to deliver gentle extraction of colour, flavor and tannin.
