The 2018 Tour de Cure Single Barrel Grenache was sourced from Glenn Becker’s old bush vine Grenache Vineyard, ‘Glengrae’ located in Ebenezer in the Northern Barossa. Hand picked at perfect ripeness late in the season, the small batch was fermented in a small open top fermenter before being transferred to a single older French Oak Hogshead.

The wine has fulfilled the early promise, fresh lifted red berries on the nose, medium weight with a backbone of long fine tannin. Old vines, Great Vintage and Sympathetic winemaking have produced a wine that will deliver great joy now and well into the future. A wine to be enjoyed with your family and the very best of friends.

Daren Armstrong has been a great friend of mine for many years. In addition to being a great guy, fantastic father and a great member of the community, he is a survivor. Over coffee one day, we decided that there was an opportunity to have some fun, and raise some much needed money to go to the Tour de Cure to help find a cure for cancer. We decided that the best way that we could do this was to make a wine, a great wine, and sell it with all proceeds going to this great cause. The 2018 Barossa harvest proved to be the perfect vintage to make a limited release special project wine.

In September 2018, the trip was made to the Barossa for Daren to sample many of the Hayes Family Wine 2018 vintage barrels with the goal of selecting the one that carried the right balance of fruit flavours, tannin and importantly the determination to cope with a few years in the cellar. You could say the one that Daren felt best represented the cause. The barrel selected was a unique barrel of wine, the fruit having been picked from very old Survivor vines, and with only 300 litres available in total. This wine was bottled on 19th of December 2018 before being hand labelled, tissue wrapped and boxed on the weekend of the 19th of January 2019.

We trust you enjoy every drop.
