2023 DHILLON Col Mountain Grenache


We are having a lot of fun making and learning about Grenache (warm climate Pinot!). The rocky and steep Col Mountain vineyard in central Heathcote is a fabulous site for this impressive variety. The wine is made like the Pinot Noir, with similar ripeness levels. It has a little more colour and weight most years but remains fresh and medium bodied. The 2023 has a seductive array of aromas, across pomegranate, rhubarb and raspberry. It is also quite perfumed. The palate is smooth and energetic with medium weight presence. It has a lovely balance with pippy tannins driving the length in a relatively tight and flowing way. This is the fourth vintage of Grenache we have made and the wines have the hallmark lick of chalky tannin. Delicious.
