An Approach to Relaxation 2016 Grenache Sucette


“The 2016 is the first vintage that uses our fruit from the RZA Block. It is in the heart of Vine Vale, the cooler, sandy Eastern pocket of the Barossa; the vines are thought to have been planted towards the end of the 1800’s. All dry grown, own-rooted Grenache.” – Richard Betts MS and Winemaker

Sucette (2016) is 100% Grenache from 2 dry-grown, own-rooted, sandy vineyards: our own Rza Block (estimated to have been planted between 1860-1880) and an 80-85-year old vineyard a kilometer away. Both vineyards are located in the heart of the Vine Vale, the coolest region of the Barossa Valley, situated at the foot of the Eden Valley in South Australia.

The Rza Block fruit gives a very clear backbone of darker fruit here; all red fruits (rather than black), but Winter red fruits like cranberry and pomegranate in addition to the Summer strawberries and cherries. The structure of the very old vines is also on display, holding together a fantastic nugget of ripe fruit on the palate. White pepper, mint, sweet meats and earth.
