What the Experts Say

It’s from a 100-year-old vineyard (Dogridge). It sees 15% whole bunches. It’s 15% alcohol.

Alcohol gives the wine a clear warmth but the flavours are excellent. Cherries, anise, earth and spices, a kind of woody-earthiness without being overtly or excessively oak-influenced. It remains bright. It pushes with raspberry and musk. There’s a lot going on here, a lot of goodness.

91/100 - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front

Our Notes

Coming in at a boozy 15% ABV, this “The Magnet” Grenache is not a subtle wine - at least, not at first. There’s chocolatey depth and a generously spiced structure behind the earthy, full-bodied and generously red-fruit-forward burst of flavour and the thick, almost jammy mouthfeel, though honestly this’d still be a hit if there weren’t.

From 100-year-old Grenache vines nearly lost to the ill-advised Vine Pull Scheme of the 1980s, which age has evidently served well.

Winemakers Comments

Having always wanted to make a Grenache and a variety that is making its own cult following in the region, I was drawn to a parcel of McLaren Vale fruit in which 100 year old Grenache vines were destined to be bulldozed. After witnessing the destruction of the ‘Vine Pull Scheme’ of the 1980’s where a majority of old vine Grenache was decimated in the region, I was determined to make sure these gnarly old vines were set to live longer……the rest they say is history.

About the Winery

Since 2001, winemaker Ben Riggs, a dead ringer for actor Michael McKean, has produced premium but unpretentious wines from a base in McLaren vale, making use of fruit from both that region and around South Australia.

The wines, driven by Riggs’ own time-honed tastes and whims, are as personality-driven as the label’s name suggests, and display lashings of regional terroir.

Free shipping on all orders over $90. We ship with Australia Post.
