2017 'La Petite Vanguard', Grenache PRESERVITIVE FREE

2017 'La Petite Vanguard', Grenache PRESERVITIVE FREE


GrenachNoir sourced from the Blewitt Springs sub-region of McLaren Vale, South Australia 


Several 1 tonne  ferments  were used in the making of this wine. Around 8 separate batches combined to create the final blend. 100% whole bunch carbonic, through to fully destemmed and all in between. Plenty of feet in these at times. Delicate handling, old small and large oak, gravity racking were the techniques used. Zero adds from vineyard to bottle for this wine makes it very unique. The final blend finally sits at around 50% whole bunch. 

This was then followed by a couple of rackings by gravity, and final blending before being bottled in September without fining or filtration or any additions.
