100% Grenache grown in the tough Ironstone laden hillside. The vines appear to float above the valley and the sea below, braving the winds off of the Southern Ocean and keeping yields achingly low, thus producing a profound Grenache of delicate balance. Aged in neutral oak for 5 months.
An imprimatur (from Latin, “let it be released”) is, in essence, a declaration, an endorsement. In what can be viewed as the ultimate endorsement of Australia’s viniferous strengths, Benjamin Hammerschlag has elected to establish roots in the country. Concurrent with his passion for seeking out Australia’s best wines, Hammerschlag began his quest for the perfect piece of property for his own wine in 2006. His search ended at one of the highest points in McLaren Vale in the sub-district of Seaview, known for producing fruit with a track record for the highest quality.
