Jason Schwartz – "My family first planted Grenache vines here at the end of World War II. With over 60 years of generous attention these beautiful gnarled vines continue to produce fruit of deep character and complexity."

93 Points - Jay Miller (erobertparker.com)

The 2006 Thiele Road Grenache was sourced from a parcel planted in 1946. Fifty percent stems are used and the wine is aged for 20 months in seasoned oak. Dark ruby-colored, it has an enticing nose of lavender, earth notes, black cherry, and black raspberry. Layered, concentrated, and with serious old-vine character, it may well evolve for several years but can be enjoyed now.

Region

Situated in South Australia, 60 kilometres northwest of Adelaide, lies the Barossa Valley which has been producing wine since 1842 and these days is recognised as Australia’s quintessential wine region. The hot climate mixed with the ironstone and sandstone soil in the valley, makes excellent growing conditions for grapes and in particular, Shiraz (or Syrah) which classically is full bodied with earthy and spicy notes. Over the last 15 years there has also been an increased interest in the other red Rhone varietals Grenache and Mourvedre. The non-irrigated old vineyards on the cooler west side of the valley are the most treasured and provide fruit for Australia’s most famous wine, Penfolds Grange among many other top-quality bottlings.
