    Barr-Eden Estate Love Over Gold Grenache 2021

    "The 2021 Love Over Gold Grenache is fine-boned, febrile and pretty, with layers of blood and iodine, plum skin and licorice. The tannins are embossed into the fruit and are incredibly pliable and malleable in the mouth. This is not a big expression of Grenache, and some may argue it isn't "big" enough for Grenache - but not me. This remains true to variety with an abundance of graphite tannin and a mineral, cooling finish. The fruit is not overly sweet; it is balanced by an exotic pink peppercorn/pastrami/sumac character. What a wine! A big, mineral YES." 97 Points, Erin Larkin, The Wine Advocate

    "Only 25 dozen produced, from a vineyard planted in 1997. Mengler’s Hill, bush vines, sitting at a lofty 525 metres above sea level. Quite exotic and perfumed, spice, strawberry and raspberry, a little sage and thyme, with something of a nutty character. It’s medium-bodied, not a big wine, and really quite pretty, with red fruits and pepper, Parma ham and grilled peach, with a cool spicy finish of excellent length. Delicate and delightful. It’s a wonderful expression of Grenache" 95+ Points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front

About this Producer

    Barr-Eden Estate is a storied piece of land situated at the crest of Mengler’s Hill, one of the highest points of viticulture in Australia. Well-known grape-grower Joel Mattschoss first acquired fruit from the site, which sits atop the ancient goldfields of the Eden, in 2014, to produce the first small batch Love Over Gold wine with Frenchman Pierre-Henri Morel. After the passing of the estate’s owner, Barossa icon, Bob McLean, in 2015, a venture began between the two, along with friends Michael Twelftree and Tim Hower, to become the new custodians of this special property of great pedigree.
