The Barossa has a fine tradition of working with old vine Grenache and the Vincent is made with 80 year old vines that contribute extraordinary character. Marcus Cirillo is known as the guru of Grenache as he’s keenly committed to the style and makes it in a time-honoured manner using a basket press and open fermenters. It’s full of rich fruit and peppery spice and a nicely rounded mouthfeel with a luscious, lingering finish.
This Grenache has been produced from a single 80 year old vineyard from the high altitude region of Rowland Flat in the renowned Barossa Valley. It has been created in the same time honoured fashion in which the Cirillo 1850 Grenache is made, using whole berry open fermentation and basket pressing.
