Tasting notes
2010 was that crazy low yielding year for Grenache Barossa wide. It was so low for us that that the Grenache that usually gets used for the Driftsand has made the grade for the Christineís for the first time. This means that there will be no 2010 Driftsand but the 2009 is still available and has turned into a bit of a sleeping giant. It looked funky early on but has become incredibly concentrated since its release earlier in May this year. Even using the two Grenache vineyards on Mum and Dadís property this year, we have still ended up with only 150 cases of the 2010 vintage. I think itís awesome. Itís one worth having in the cellar just to be the proud owner of a very rare offering. 100% Grenache from a year that was about 80% down on average yield.

Wine maker notes
Growing up as a kid, I remember this as my Mumís favourite block. It was the acre of vines she always saved for last. So, being special to her, it was the block I first started making into wine. My favourite wines come from Grenache grown on sandy soils the world over. Christineís Vineyard lies in the heart of the deep Vine Vale sand resulting in a wine that is typically very aromatic, lifted and spicy and having been traditionally made is a very pure expression of the variety. It is the work horse of our region just like Mumís generation of determined and resilient grape growers.
