About the Grenache Project
Along with Shiraz and Mataro, Grenache has been a stand out feature of the Barossa’s red wine landscape since vines were first planted here over 170 years ago. Barossa today lays claim to being home to the oldest Grenache vineyards in the world, and produces a diverse range of compelling expressions of a variety that is rapidly emerging a favourite amongst the region’s artisan winemaker community.
In the last few months, the faith of the Barossa wine community in its old Grenache vineyards has been rewarded spectacularly. Bethany Wines’ 2016 Grenache was awarded Best Red and Best Wine at the Barossa Wine Show, and Turkey Flat’s 2016 Barossa Grenache won Australia’s most famous wine award, the Jimmy Watson Trophy (a first for a Grenache wine). Barossa Grenache’s light has never shone more brightly.
The Grenache Project is an exciting new initiative from Artisans of Barossa, representing six wines made by our six winemakers from a single Barossa vineyard. Each winemaker was allocated two rows of vines, and left entirely to their own devices. Responding to a simple brief… “Make a Grenache you’d like to drink”, the winemakers have produced a set of wines that are testament to the outstanding vintage and an emphatic statement of the supreme qualities and deliciousness of Barossa Grenache. And whilst the special qualities of the vineyard are evident throughout, each wine stands apart from the others, bearing the distinct imprint of the maker through style, character and flavour. For adventurous discoverers of small batch Barossa winemaking, The Grenache Project is not to be missed.
Watch Pete Schell (Owner and Winemaker from Spinifex) speak about the Grenache Project and the significance of Grenache to Barossa.
