Grenache 2019 – Black Market Deal #41880
- Rich, full-bodied
- Barossa Valley
We love Barossa for many reasons, but grenache will always hold a special place in the hearts of many. One of the greatest treasures is the gnarly old grenache vines the region is home to. Wines like these are exemplars of old vine greatness; hand harvested from 95y/o bush vines and passed to old French oak after fermentation. Some whole bunches in the ferment have given this wine a grandiose florality, so you’d be forgiven for thinking this wine is all fun and games from first impressions. Dive into the glass, and you’ll see the serious side: round, plump, and layered. Plums, macerated strawberries, chocolate, cherry, a touch of anise even whispers on the finish. Those old vines might require skilled hands to nurture their abundant potential, but they pay the hard work back in spades.

'Barossa Valley'. This is Australia's key wine brand overseas, in the US especially. It's our riposte to 'Champagne', 'Scotch' and 'Barolo'. My mind conjures these images, in this order: Shiraz, Penfolds wine, Maggie Beer condiments. All of which can GET - IN - MY - BELLY! But there is so much more to the Barossa than first glance. There are fringe (and not so fringe) winemakers actively working to classify the valley's subregions, and this is a very worthy cause. From Moppa to Seppeltsfield to Marananga there's a lot of variation, and the styles produced can vary immensely. This is the next step in the vision of this region (which, let's face it, is a baby in the scheme of things), as it gets acquainted with its strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities.It's a region that's not sorry to produce the big, fruit-driven wine styles that make it so popular. So drink to the future of the Barossa, because it's as bright as any other region on the world stage.
