2023 Kin Grenache

2023 Kin Grenache

The Kin Grenache feels energetic and floral, but give it time and red fruit, blood orange and cardamon will present. A patch of vines on limestone provides vibrancy and definition, necessary for the wine’s drive, with flesh and power from Blocks 22 on clay and 18 on schist.

Tasting Notes
The cool 2023 season has delivered a wine of elegance, with exceptional fine tannin. The Kin Grenache feels energetic and floral, but give it time and red fruit, blood orange and cardamon will present. A patch of vines on limestone provides vibrancy and definition, necessary for the wine’s drive, with flesh and power from Blocks 22 on clay and 18 on schist.
Vineyard Notes
Fruit for the 2023 Grenache is made up of three blocks. Block 22, planted to bush vines in 2016, is located on the east to west ridge of the property, making up 42% of the wine. Picked in two parcels; the limestone component on 18 March and the clay component, a week later. Block 18, picked 17 March, from vines on clay and schist makes up 50% of the wine, with the remainder from Block 25.

The heart is sweet but it’s all savoury from there. Indeed such is the array that it’s hard to know where to start: sweet plum, red licorice and boysenberry move quickly towards saltbush, woodsy spice, potpourri and sweet earth. It’s juicy and lacy at once, the finish beautifully composed, the carry of the finish satisfying and then some.
