SINGLE SITE GRENACHE, RENDE VINEYARD, BLEWITT SPRINGS, MCLAREN VALE

NAME: ‘Blewitt’ is the namesake for Blewitt Springs, where the Rende Vineyard is located in the north eastern corner of McLaren Vale. It boasts an altitude exceeding 200m above sea level. The top soil is pure sand, with clay and red ironstone pockets below the surface.

VINTAGE OVERVIEW: We experienced ample rain in the winter of 2022, with continued moist and cool conditions into spring. This delayed budburst and resulted in slower shoot growth. The combination of late flowering and fruit set, combined with cool summer conditions resulted in a slightly late and shortened vintage period.

HARVEST: The Rende Vineyard comprises of 3.5Ha of 54 year old bush vine Grenache, along with 2.5ha of 55 and 30 year old trellised Syrah. Along with the Grenache that was harvested over three separate picks, the Syrah was hand harvested on the 24th and 26th of March.

VINIFICATION:

  • Whole Cluster Fermentation: Approx 50% final blend
  • Elevage: The two varieties were fermented separately. Post blending in winter, elevage took place in a three year old french oak 26HL cuve for approx 11 months.
  • Blending: The wine is a 55/45 blend of Grenache & Syrah. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
