Soul Growers Persistence Barossa Grenache

Persistence perfectly describes Grenache in the Barossa Valley.   Having persevered as the workhorse variety it is often used in blending and often undervalued but in exceptional years it is truly world class. Persistence Grenache which is sure to enrich your Soul!

"52yo vines at Marananga and Vine Vale, whole berries open-fermented, 7-10 days on skins, matured for 18 months in used French hogsheads. The choice of 100% old oak was 100% correct, but 19 months is open for discussion. The grenache is so good it hasn't lost its varietal character - this is a very enjoyable wine, the second glass apt to follow the first without undue delay."

Soul Growers was formed in 1998 by the experienced winemaker Paul Heinicke with the addition of award-winning winemaker Stuart Bourne, and quickly gathered a strong following in their domestic, Asian and North American markets. Most of their dedicated team members are 5th generation descendants from the first grape-growing families who settled in the Barossa valley. They are fortunate to work with Old Vine, Survivor, Centurion and Ancestor vines, some being over 130 years old, and their goal is to let the unique character of these vineyard sites across the Barossa valley shine through in their wines. Where nature provides, they only guide. With this in mind, they strive to make sure Soul Growers wines emphasise the regional and varietal flavours of their beloved Barossa Valley. The essence of what they strive for is to ensure a lifestyle that is good for the Soul; wine, food, family, music, mates and fun.
