Winemaker Notes

The grapes for our Blewitt Springs Grenache were handpicked from low-yielding, dry-grown old vines and gently destemmed before undergoing whole berry fermentation. We used wild yeast fermentation to increase the retention of the grape’s varietal essence and minimize bitter tannin extract. All pressings are returned to the barrel and bottled onsite without fining or filtration. This wine aged for 18 months in a combination of one- to five-year-old tight-grained French oak barrels designed especially for Clarendon Hills.

Notes of kirsch, spice and dried tealeaves create an elegant complement to red cherry flavors, leading to an intense, lengthy finish. The restrained fruit intensity and lingering, silky finish suggests great aging potential.

WW 93
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: Over the last three decades, there has been a healthy revival of Grenache. Clarendon Hills has been a big part of this, and the 2011 vintage is one of the best examples of this grape worldwide. TASTING NOTES: This wine is active and bright from start to finish. Its aromas and flavors of raspberries and accents of earth should pair it beautifully with a thin-crusted pizza with pancetta and arugula. (Tasted: June 20, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Clarendon Hills is a small family-run winery based in Clarendon, South Australia. The company was founded by biochemist, Roman Bratasiuk, in 1990. The story of Clarendon Hills is one of passion, dedication and commitment to exception wine. It all began when this biochemist and wine lover decided to produce his own wine. Though he'd never trained as a winemaker, Roman let himself be guided by his refined palate and scientific knowledge. Following his favorite producers and preferred styles, Roman sought to make a version of the wines he loved.

Known for opulent red wines with intense power and concentration, McLaren Vale is home to perhaps the most “classic” style of Australian Shiraz. Vinified on its own or in Rhône Blends, these hot-climate wines are deeply colored and high in extract with signature hints of dark chocolate and licorice. Cabernet Sauvignon is also produced in a similar style.

Whites, often made from Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc tend to be opulent and full of tropical, stone and citrus fruit.

Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. While Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha), today it is more recognized as the key player in the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its villages. Somm Secret—The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic, single varietal Grenache (there called Cannonau). California, Washington and Australia have achieved found success with Grenache, both flying solo and in blends.
