In the North Western section of the Barossa Valley, the red clay loam over marl (a friable earthly deposit consisting of clay and limestone) produces the highest quality red wines. These soils provide the perfect balance of nutrient availability and vine stress, producing wines with saturated colour and fruit intensity.
Hantley Farm, The Marl Grenache is bright red. Its scented fruits fill the nose with specifics of macerated strawberries and raspberries, with secondary characters of fennel flower and liquorice providing the spicy lift. The palate shows great tannin focus through the middle and fleshy red fruit around the sides. Even with elements of sweet and savoury and equally pleasing on the palate, this vegan wine also pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes.
