2015 ANNEXUS

The inspiration from the Barossa’s best old vine Grenache vineyards created Annexus, an addition to our Plexus blend. Annexus is a small unique blend selected from our best old low yielding Grenache vineyards, made only in the best years. 

Region: Barossa

Varieties: Annexus Grenache was sourced from two very old low yielding Barossa Vineyards, one ancestor vineyard over 150 years old and the other old vines from the Northern Barossa Valley.

Winemaking: Fermentation in small open top fermenters incorporating a small amount of whole bunches.

Oak Maturation: 100% barrel maturated for 12 months, in older French oak hogsheads (300 litre barrels).

Technical Notes:
Alcohol 14.0%
pH 3.48
TA 6.1 g/l

Tasting:

  • Colour: Bright purple-red.
  • Nose: Vibrant red fruit aromatics complexed by red roses and savoury spice.
  • Palate: Fine and long, delicate yet carrying impressive purity and flavour intensity. An array of ripre red fruits, dark cherry and raspberry fill the palate finsihing with hints of clove, dusty earth and velvety tannins.
