Simon Hackett Old Vine Grenache

In 1984, Simon Hackett decided to concentrate fully on establishing his own boutique label and today crushes grapes grown in the McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley regions of South Australia, producing a range of rich, bold, innovative wines.
This hand crafted Rhône style Aussie red uses grapes from gnarled 50 year old McLaren Vale Grenache vines to yield a rich, spicy wine with redcurrant and raspberry fruit enhanced by 3 month oak maturation. Old vines tend to give you much more mineral-rich wines because the roots go very, very deep searching out water and minerals as the vine ages. So you are getting a wine that is got ancient minerals in it withe spiciness coming from the Grenache grape.

The Hedonist Cabernet Sauvignon

The fruit for the Hedonist Cabernet Sauvignon is grown biodynamically on the estate vineyard situated in the Willunga foothills, McLaren Vale. Warm Summer days are cooled by evening sea breezes from St Vincentís Gulf, which lies a close proximity to the West. The soil is rich loam over clay with patches of underlying limestone, giving the wine a rich and fullness of pallet.
