Ebenezer Grenache | Barossa Valley

Following picking, in early March to mid April, grapes were crushed and open fermented to enhance aromatics. Larger, second-fill Hogsheads and Puncheon oak barrels were used for short-term maturation to engage a style that is fruit-driven and vibrant.

Grenache of a lighter shade, crafted with plenty of whole berry by the smell of it. Cranberry, bergamot and strawberry, with a spicy herbal undercurrent. Ripe and crunchy. Australian fruit sweet, but nothing excessive. Drink on the cooler side.

About the same density and weight as a good Pinot Noir, all sweet berry fruit on the palate, soft, seductive and easy on the gums. Slurpable for sure. Drink soon. BUY.

Grenache, the Barossa Vallay, a famous sub-region. There’s warmth here but I love this wine’s taut, dry, spicy length. It has fruit and flavour but it’s more about dryness and tension. Red licorice, steel, woodsy spice and graphite. The flavours and feels slip through the mouth in sheets. It’s very well done. It’s very good buying.

Ebenezer is located in the far northern corner of the Barossa Valley. There are no undulating hills here, just wide plains which are well suited for growing some proper Grenache. Not pretty, sweet Grenache but hearty wines that are full of flavour and with real character. This is a serious example of Barossan Grenache. It is ripe and open for business with baked earth, dried herb and red cherry jam fruits that are reserved and brooding. It’s then full-bodied and supple with generous fruit that drives a long and satisfying finish. It is made for early drinking but seriously delivers for the price and is great value.
