Loom SV McLaren Vale Grenache 2018

Selectively Handpicked from our 100+ year old Block 11 Vineyard in McLaren Flat, we carted the fruit to the winery in half tonne bins and dropped them into a Refrigerated Shipping Container to cold soak for a few days pre ferment. Once out we lightly pumped over and hand plunged the cap before pressing before dryness and completing fermentation in older oak where it stayed until in we came back from Christmas holidays.
There’s an abundance of red fruits both aromatically and throughout the palate, it’s soft and alluring without being extracted and the chalky tannins bind the sweet fruits and balance out the flavour profile. There’s plenty to like about this, easy drinking yet complex and very much capable of further improvement over the next 5 or so years.

  • The Real Review
    Aaron Brasher - 91 Points - "Violets, geraniums, Cherry Ripe, vanilla, stewed plums and spice. The palate has a red-fruited creaminess to it, there's also anise, dark cherry, and some grippy, chalky, drying tannins that coat the mouth and give direction to the juicy fruit component of the wine" Aaron Brasher 27 Feb 2021
