WA 92-95 It is always easy to pick out the Blewitt Springs Grenache given its flamboyant, jammy blueberry and black raspberry style. The full-bodied, rich, showy 2005 Grenache Blewitt Springs is deeper-colored than the Clarendon Hills and Hickinbotham as well as super-pure. RPJ Oct 2006.

James Halliday 95 points. Grenache McLaren Vale Made from small parcels of organic fruit, this wine is an expression of the joy and curiosity of winemaking. Beautiful perfume lift.

James Suckling – 94 Points McLaren Vale Wine Show 2021 – GOLD – 94 Points Silver Medal, Global Organic Masters 2021. Quite pale ruby, watery rim.

James Halliday (97 points & "Winner of the James Halliday Grenache Challenge 2020"): “The winning wine was a superb example of regionality and complexity, with earthy savouriness coupled with beautifully bright fruit and structure.” James Suckling (95 points): "This has rich blackberry and raspberry aromas with cloves, spicy oak, red plums and violets. The palate is very plush, deep and smoothly textured. Ripe tannins stretch long and carry blueberry, dark-cherry and blackberry flavors. Drink or hold."
Wine Front 93 points. "From a vineyard in Krondorf. 80 year old vines with 8% Mataro. Juicy, purple, ripe raspberry, brown spices. Gummy feel, saucy and spicy, tannin has some grit, and finish is jubey and fairly long. Feels a little different from the usual offerings from Head, in terms of Grenache, though that’s perhaps a function of the vintage." - Gary Walsh, Wine Front. Grenache sourced from vines in the Krondorf subregion with an average age of 80 years old. Red and dark plum fruits flow forth here, with plenty of spice backing, a light sheath of red floral notes and a waft of ginger cake. There is abundant, pithy tannin this year,...
Wine Advocate 97 points. Total production 208 dozen. The 2019 Stonegarden Grenache is made with fruit from the Stonegarden Vineyard (bush vines planted circa 1858) in the Eden Valley. This is so good. It shows all of the mineralogy and graphite tannins that are so commonly found in the Eden Valley—part of what makes it such a special place. I was there recently, and driving up Mengler's Hill not only affords you a most epic view back over the Barossa Valley floor, but I find it the best place to understand the rocks in the earth that rise up out of the ground there. This wine has such endurance of flavor in the mouth that I can still taste...
Predominantly sourced from estate vines planted over 100 years ago. It's been treated with total respect in the winery, matured in used oak without any additions other than SO2. Extraordinary value for a wine with decades ahead. 97 points. James Halliday. Published 21 March 2022
Turkey Flat has more than 25 years experience in making Grenache. This older variety for South Australia has a natural home in the Barossa, although respect for the variety as a maker of fine wine has only recently been achieved. It has been an important part of the Turkey Flat range since 1992. Beautiful floral and spiced aromatics, bright fruit that fills out into more complex spiced and savoury characteristics, and strong tannins that will ensure longevity.
