Jay Miller - "The 2005 Alexander Laing Old Vines Grenache was sourced from 100-year-old vines in the Greenock subregion of Barossa. Dark ruby-colored, it has a complex bouquet of damp earth, sage, smoked herbs, espresso, cassis, and kirsch. Velvety-textured with superb depth, it also has well-concealed tannins which will allow the wine to evolve for another 4-6 years. It has a pure, 45-second finish. This is an outstanding Grenache."
Winemaker - "Alexander Gordon Laing was yet another explorer from Scotland who trekked around West Africa in the 18th century. Alexander Laing, like the rest of our Single Vineyard Series, owes its existence to the blocks of weather-beaten bush vines that survived the vine-pull of the end of the last century."
