An elegant and refined Granche from biodynamic old vines in the McLaren Vale. This wine represents some of the top sources from this extraordinary estate. With decent body and presence -- but in a fine-boned and even refreshing way -- this is not a block-buster so much as a refined and elegant expression of Grenache. Decant well or cellar for a while.

Its Origins

The grew the business releasing their own Gemtree label in 1998. Son Andrew Buttery now heads the company, and his sister Melissa and her husband Mike Brown look after the viticulture and winemaking. The company has made the commitment to sustainability, practising biodynamic farming and achieved Australian Certified Organic certification in 2011. Gemtree owns over 130 ha of vineyards across three main sites and makes a large range of wines over different tiers." Raymond Chan

What The Critics Say

95/100 Halliday's Australian Wine Companion, James Halliday

(Review unavailable)

93/100 Huon Hooke

"Deep red/purple colour - very good for grenache - with a gently herbal, floral grenachey aroma, fruit driven, with a lick of pepper. The wine is full-bodied and deep, with excellent structure and grip, bright berry flavours and oodles of charm. An excellent full-bodied, structured grenache that will reward some cellaring. (2400 bottles made) 22 APR 2019." Drink 2019 - 2031
