2016 Jauma Ralph's Vineyard Grenache
By James Erskine and Fiona Wood.
Grenache from McLaren Vale, South Australia.
No added sulphites.
NB: All of James' wines, still or sparkling, are bottled under crown seal.
900 vines at the top of the Clarendon ridge, planted by Ralph Wood in 1988. A spiritual place with views across the vale to the cliffs of second valley and onto Kangaroo Island. Forget anything you ever knew about Grenache, don't get confused with Nebbiolo - who cares about the variety, this wine is place.
