Predominantly Grenache with Mataro and Shiraz. Sourced from old vineyards on the northern, western and eastern edges of the Barossa Valley and from Moculta and Springton in Eden Valley. Vine ages range from 75 to over 150 years, all are dry grown. Bright and ruby hued. Perfumed aromatics ‚– a pure expression of Grenache ‚– rose water, lavender honey, white pepper, lilies, fresh cherries, cassis and raspberries. Subtle base notes of hazel nuts and black tea. Striking yet delicate, fine and feminine. Youthful and un-evolved palate ‚– strongly spiced cherry and tart raspberry fruits are underlain by sappy herbal notes of verveine and pomegranate ‚– like acids. Fine, powdery dry tannins. Fresh and athletic. - Winery Note
Peter Schell and Magali Gely have had a home in the Barossa Valley for over twenty years and hold a strong commitment to and passion for the Barossa. They also have a strong French connection, both physically and philosophically. Magali's family, who up until recently were vignerons with a long lineage in Lunel, near Montpellier, still live in south west France, and over the last ten years Peter has worked six French vintages, in Provence, the Languedoc, Bordeaux and Burgundy. Time spent in the south of France has fuelled their interest in making unique, hand crafted wines with personality, which are generous and honest expressions of the varieties and their provenance.Grapes are sourced from a group of dedicated growers in both the Barossa and Eden Valleys, taking advantage of the great diversity of the soils and meso-climates of the Barossa to create wines with balance, character, depth of flavour and Barossan generosity.
