Epic is an understatement! The aromatics, the glorious texture, the vivaciousness of this wine is something to behold. This is the quintessential modern McLaren Vale Grenache and just a stunning thing to drink and set to be one of the most sought-after Grenache releases in Australia this year.

 

As with many great stories, VANGUARDIST was born of humble beginnings. Ideals, harmonised over a table littered with empty bottles. Laughs that rolled late into the evening, not realising the impetus forming; a relentless ‘fire in the belly’ that sent Michael bouncing across the equator, chasing international harvests for most of his adult life. 

 

The Vanguardist range represents the epitome of what they are about. Pushing the realms of standard winemaking to deliver intrigue, excitement and utmost quality, without any loss of sense of place. Ultimate dedication to the craft of viticulture and winemaking, encapsulated in a bottle –through our lens.

FROM THE WINEMAKER

The Grenache that produces this wine comes from an outstanding vineyard in Blewitt Springs. A hidden gem of sorts, the high ‘Silver Sands’ vineyard was planted by Robert Rende and his father Michael some 50+ years ago. The summer of 2020 was the third hot and dry vintage in succession. Small patches of rain during critical moments helped the vines remain vibrant, yet crops were just a little above 50% of long-term average (18HL/Ha). The final wine sees around 50% whole bunch, slightly less than the past couple of releases.
