2017 Massena Stonegarden Grenache
The historic Stonegarden planting of Grenache can contain a proportion of other varieties inter-planted amongst the bush vines. This wine was made using grapes sourced from a section of the Stonegarden property that contain a denser proportion of Mataro and Shiraz amongst the Grenache. Wild fermented with 100% whole bunch inclusion, then aged on lees in seasoned French oak puncheons for 12 months and bottled without fining or filtration.
Raspberries and cherries mark the nose of the 2017 Stonegarden Grenache, sourced from Eden Valley. This full-bodied rendering of Grenache is quite deep, dark and tannic, although it’s creamy enough on the mid-palate to make it approachable now. Serious stuff, with a long, spice-driven finish. – 93 points, Joe Czerwinski
