Harris Grenache

The Harris vineyard, planted to Grenache in 2002, celebrates the traditional bush vine growing methods of the Barossa Valley pioneering grape growers.

This single site Grenache comes from the Harris Vineyard located in Marananga on the western ridge of the Barossa Valley. Grown as bush vines in iron stone rich brown loam and clay soils the resulting wine is highly expressive with fragrant aromatics, tension and balance.

A bush vine is a grapevine without a trellis and is pruned to form a “goblet” shape, to separate the bunches of fruit. Low to the ground these vines benefit from the warmth of the earth to create an ideal ripening condition. Grenache is best suited to this bush vine growing technique because of the upright orientation of its shoots.

At the heart of this wine is a soft plump cherry fruit core and soft mouth coating tannins. The bouquet offers sweet raspberries and ripe cherry, further lifted with a complex array of black pepper, violets and liquorice.

Current Vintage 2016
Despite a dry winter during 2015, rains in January and March 2016, freshened the older vines and provided long, slow ripening periods in between, which led to a stand-out vintage with high quality fruit.
