One of the oldest field blends in the world of Grenache, Mourvedre and Malbec planted more than 150 years ago in 1858. This small block in Springton in the Eden Valley is home to classified ‘Ancestor’ vines, dry grown as bushvines on their original rootstock. The block yields just over 1 ton of grapes in the best of vintages, which are hand-picked into small picking baskets to optimize fruit health.
With only 1200 bottles produced in the best of vintages, this vineyard is a national treasure for wine. It is hand-picked and handcrafted in individual 1 ton fermenters, carefully basket-pressed and matured 18 months in two French oak puncheons. All care is taken to ensure the purity, grace and quality of these old vines is fully expressed in every vintage of this wine.
