Celebrating the legacy of Barossa Valley Grenache, Pete Schell sources this wine from three dry-grown, old-vine parcels: one in the extreme west at Moppa (55 years old); one in northern Barossa at Ebenezer (90 years old); and one in Bethany in the east (85 years old). The winemaking was very much in the traditional Spinifex mould: slow, natural fermentations with gentle pump-overs and foot-stomping. With a focus on freshness and drinkability allied to a supple core of Barossan generosity and depth of flavour, the 2020 Garçon was crafted with an average of 40% whole bunches. The aging took place on light lees in a selection of seasoned, thick-staved 600-litre demi-muids, with an additional stint in 2,500 litre foudre. Bottled unfined and without filtration, eight months after harvest.
