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.

Our second Grenache release, this time from the often unheralded Riverland region of South Australia. Sounds a little odd for us, but the vineyard is 60+year old bush vines and grown by Ricca Terra Farms, a cracker-jack grape grower responsible for re-invigorating the Riverland and getting some great fruit out to a new breed of smaller winemakers (like me!). Plus Grenache loves the heat so I figured it would work well. My intention was to make a light, juicy and aromatic style – a drink-now wine for immediate pleasure. We added 30% whole bunches to the 3 tonne ferment, left it on skins for 3 weeks then pressed it to old oak vats and puncheons. No rackings and a December bottling to retain as much prettiness and aroma as possible.

– Vine age: 60+ yearss
– 14% alc. pH3.6
– Total Acidity 5.2g/l
– 260 dozen produced
