2013 Old Bush Vine Grenache
Premium dry grown fruit sourced from our oldest vines planted in 1919 has been hand picked and open fermented before maturing in French and American oak for 2 years.
With sweet lifted aromas of dark fruit, pepper and liquorice and flavours of cherry, blackberry and chocolate.
The wine has a silky mouth feel with firm tannins and great persistence on the palate.
THE STORY OF REILLY'S OLD BUSH VINE GRENACHE VINEYARD
These vines were planted in 1919 by a soldier who returned from WW1 and was allocated this land by the government as part of the Soldier Settlement Scheme.
This scheme was introduced to repatriate and compensate returned servicemen by allocating parcels of agricultural land throughout Australia.
AWARDS & ACCOLADES
SILVER MEDAL ~ 2015 Cairns Show Wine Awards
91 POINTS ~ Josh Raynolds (USA), www.vinous.com, March 2016
“Bright ruby. Highly fragrant, spice-accented blackberry and cherry aromas are complicated by sexy floral pastille and allspice qualities, with white pepper and licorice nuances emerging slowly. Seamless, broad and sweet in the mouth, offering supple red and blue fruit preserve flavors and a hint of candied flowers. Closes juicy and very long, with harmonious tannins and resonating spiciness.”
