2018 Section 181 Grenache
Giovanni Patritti purchased Section 181 Branson Road, Tatachilla in the region of McLaren Vale in 1960 to further his vineyard holdings. Among other varieties, a section of the property was planted to Grenache. Today, fifteen acres of the original dry-grown Grenache vines remain and are used to make this single vineyard wine.
Medium to deep brick red with a ruby hue; the aromatics of the wine are intense and complex with lifted fruit characters of raspberry and black cherry. The palate is rounded and juicy, the structural tannins keep it tight, but the wine is balanced and generous.
Drink now or cellar for 10+ years.
