Kurtz Family Charlie’s Centenarian Grenache 2021 Barossa Valley

$27.95

Kurtz Family Charlie’s Centenarian Grenache 2021

Fragrant fruit aromas of cherry, raspberry, loganberry and pomegranate are gently supported by a background of French oak, wth an exotic spicy lift of Szechuan pepper and star anise, hints of dried orange, and red liquorice. A bold, rich, full-flavoured palate with a fabulous balance of fruit, acidity and tannins. Supple and textured, with plush, mouthwatering, cherry fruit that reveals more flavour with every sip. Earthy, savoury notes, exotic spices and black tea astringency add complexity and interest. Fine, long, supple tannins keep the flavours lingering.

Charlie Braunack is a true Barossa legend. He lovingly tends a very special block of majestic old Grenache bush vines first planted in 1895 by Oscar Schulz and currently owned by Brian and Marie Mibus. The original block was 3 acres in size, but only 1.5 acres survived the controversial Vine Pull Scheme of the 1980s. The vineyard is planted in the deep sands of the Kalimna sub-region of the Barossa Valley. With wide 10ft x 10ft spacings and no irrigation, it yields complex, concentrated fruit. Kurtz Family Vineyards has sourced Grenache from the vineyard since 2004, traditionally blending it in to our Boundary Row GSM. Recognising the consistently exceptional quality of this fruit, from 2019 we decided to release a standalone wine from a portion of the crop, in Charlie’s honour.

The Barossa Old Vine Charter recognises and celebrates the intrinsic merit of old vines, classifying wines made from vines greater than 100 years as Centenarian. This is a limited release wine. Charlie’s Grenache is a delicious match with barbecued lamb, Peking duck, quail, roasted red meats, robust vegetable dishes, and pasta with rich, flavoursome sauces.
