Winemaker's Notes:

This single vineyard Grenache from a block in the Light Pass sub-region of the Barossa was planted in the late 19th Century. The wine has been aged for 24 months in one year old French Oak to allow softening and maturation without imparting too much oak flavor. This Grenache has ample fruit weight with big chewy tannins and a palate loaded with spice and herbs. A wonderful finish comes with excellent grip and mouth pucker from the tannins. Great balance and elegance.
My Notes:

About Gotham:

Gotham is a new project by Bruce Clugston, a veteran in the Australian wine industry. In 2004 Bruce and his wife, Fiona White Bruce, visited New York City and had such a great time that they decided to use New York's nickname as "Gotham City" as part of their wine label. Bruce draws on 30 years of experience in the wine industry and long held desire as a former wine retailer to create a product of exceptional value that is approachable in youth as well as years down the line. Gotham wines are created from fruit sourced from the iconic wine growing regions of Australia. The Gotham wines has gradually added to their regional varieties, only producing when they come across a fruit source that they are proud to put under their label. They use the talents of some of the best winemakers in South Australia to put together a range of wines showcasing the best regions and varieties.
