The Disrupter

Grenache 2023

Starting South Australia’s wine industry is disruptive. Pushing little sticks of Grenache into ground surrounded by gums and hoping they take and make wine is pretty disruptive too. This though is the Hamilton legacy, and this is a wine that celebrates every sweet disruption of the everyday.

Winemaker's Notes

In the heart of suburban Adelaide remains one last patch of Grenache vines of what was once the vast Hamilton Ewell Vineyard. From these we carefully took cuttings, just as has been done for thousands of years, and stuck them into the ground at our McLaren Vale home, continuing a generations old legacy; and they love it here.

Bouquet & Palate

Sandalwood snap, incense wrapped, fire-engine licorice straps. Red berries tease, with rosehip and black tea. Strawberry, bubblegum, cinnamon quills, and cola. Pure pomegranate. Love letter. A boudoir stunner. Beguilingly, satisfyingly opulent. The finish persists, lasting and delicious.

Food Match

Pork and strawberry salad with crumbled goats cheese, or a strawberry spinach salad with caramelised hazelnuts.
