50% GRENACHE, 50% MOUVEDRE
BLEWITT SPRINGS, MCLAREN VALE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA

We’ve always thought of the La Petite Vanguard as being our example of a Bistro style wine – the experimental sibling to Vanguardist. Youthful & vibrant, with great drinkability, enhanced by layers of complexity from thoughtful use of solids, skin contact, oak and other vessels.

WINEMAKING
As the vineyards lay within a few hundred meters of each other, in the sands of Blewitt Springs, they shared a very similar weather pattern of both hot & dry. However, these are two very resilient varieties that have proven through the centuries that they can withstand, or at least survive in what can be the toughest and most arid of grape growing climates.

The final wine is a 50/50 blend of Grenache & Mourvèdre.  They were fermented separately, and the blend would comprise approximately 30% whole cluster. Aged 500L puncheons housed the wine for about 6 months post press, before the final wine was blended and sent to bottle without fining or filtration.
