The Story Wines is oddly located in a drab, southern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.

2014 Heathcote Grenache

Cellar Door

Our first release of Grenache, something I have been keen to do for some time. The 1.4 tonne parcel of grapes was split in half, one half fermented as whole bunches and the other destemmed. The two were wild yeast fermented over 18 days then pressed to a 1000lt older oak vat for 8 months maturation. A hugely aromatic, early release style with rosemary and red liquorice aromas, velvety texture and gentle tannins to close.

– Vine age: 5 years
– 14.5% alc.pH3.64
– Total Acidity 5.6g/l
– 100 dozen produced
