Four Roads Grenache 2021
Uniquely McLaren Vale. Grenache was the backbone of the wine industry here for over a century with a recent renaissance in style making Grenache the most sought after grape in the entire region.
Our Grenache vines have grown for over 90 years on a contoured hill, and have seen tastes change from rich, sweet fortifieds to this modern, aromatic and spicy medium-bodied Grenache.
They were bush vines with their thick trunks and sprawling arms until a few years ago when they were lifted up and put on a trellis wire to keep them ripening evenly as they grow older. The soil profile is a light loam over some clay and then deep limestone. The vines are hand pruned and hand-picked for the highest quality fruit.

"The basis for this excellent grenache is a 90-year-old McLaren Vale vineyard planted using terraced rows. The vintage which was one of the best in 20 years really gave them something to play with. So beautifully weighted with the medium bodied showing the finesse to showcase this variety. Red fruits with a lift of rose petal and a slightly savoury edge on the finish. A complete and thoroughly delicious wine.”
