The family Grenache block on Thiele Road in Bethany remains one of Jason’s favourite blocks. The gnarled, old vines were planted in 1941 and they produce fantastic fruit.

Description

The family Grenache block on Thiele Road in Bethany remains one of Jason’s favourite blocks. The Thiele Road Grenache was the second wine made by Jason Schwarz and celebrates his love of this diverse variety. The gnarled, old vines were planted in 1941 and they produce fantastic fruit.

The wine has a light palate weight, delicious light spice of clove, star anise and ripe red cherries. Aromas of strawberry, red cherry and a touch of lavender round out this fantastic example of Barossa Grenache.
