McLaren Vale

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.

Bright red-purple in colour the wine has a fragrantly perfumed nose with cherry and ripe red berries. The palate is ripe and juicy with hints of brambles and raspberries that give warmth. Great acidity with edgy tannins that soften over time.
