Vanguardist "V" Grenache 2020

Michael Corbett is a seriously talented winemaker, arguably producing some of the finest Grenache this country has ever seen. 

The spiritual home of Vanguardist is the beautiful Silver Sands vineyard in Blewitt Springs, planted by Robert Rende and his father 49 years ago. This incredible vineyard has always been dry grown. Its topsoil is all made up of wind-blown Maslin sands, atop residual alluvial sands, generally over ironstone and clay. The sand is up to 8m deep in parts of the vineyard, allowing roots to penetrate very deep.
