VINEYARD INFORMATION
Vineyard Notes
The Grenache comes from the Lopresti vineyard, and more specifically Joe’s Block, which is located at the southern end of McLaren Vale about 5km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga. Low growing season rainfall, combined with a hot summer, led to an early and condensed vintage. Yields were below average, a result of the dry conditions and an intense November hail storm event. The moderating influence of Gulf St Vincent, reliable spring rainfall, and supplementary summer drip irrigation allowed us to successfully cope with the challenges of the season. Fruit quality was tremendous with small berries full of concentrated flavour. Intense aromatics are a hallmark of the vintage.
WINEMAKING & TECH INFORMATION
Winemaker Notes
The Grenache comes from the Lopresti vineyard, and more specifically Joe’s Block, which is located at the southern end of McLaren Vale about 5km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga. The Jester Grenache fruit is crushed immediately after being delivered to us at the winery. We allow the skin and juice mix to warm naturally over a period of several days, after which it begins fermentation. The ferment is held cool, to retain the bright primary fruit characters which appear in the resulting wine. Following ferment, we carefully press the wine to separate it from the skins. The wine is then transferred into oak barrels where it stays for twelve months before bottling. HARVEST DATE: March 2019 MATURATION: 100% Stainless Steel for 6 months. ALCOHOL (Alc/Vol): 14.5% RS: 0.3G/L pH: 3.4 TA: 5.17g/L
