Chaffey Bros Pax Aeterna Nouveau Old Vine Grenache 2017 (Barossa Valley, South Australia) “…cranberry, anise, spice…”
Nouveau style with 30% whole bunch. This is bare Barossa beauty. The grower, Kevin Schild, is the custodian of these 83 year-old vines from Light Pass, Northern Barossa.
Unfixed & unfiltered
“Grown by Kevin Child at Light Pass in the northern Barossa. 33% whole bunches. Unfined and unfiltered. Cloudy in a good way. Freeflowing and tense at once. An unfettered wine, free in its expression, ripped with spice and cranberry, anise and general woody spices. There’s a gentle twigginess here but it washes straight through. Energy. Crunch. Almost crisp. The red wine equivalent of frost. Have to admire it.” – 92 Points, Winefront
