85pts from Wine Enthusiast and 89pts from Wine Spectator makes this Aussie red a true find!! Per the vineyards the name comes from when "During the vine pull scheme in the 80's, d'Arry Osborn refused to remove his old Grenache vineyards. Today d'Arenberg is the keeper of nearly one third of McLaren Vale's old bush vine Grenache, earning the title of 'Custodian' of the variety". The weather season started off well but fell into a heat wave which led right into cool, rainy weather. This slowed down the ripening allowing for the natural sugars to catch up developing fruit forward wines with soft yet ample tannins. Crushed in small batches full of jammy red fruits, earth and tobacco that all adds up to a complex food wine. A great value for this old vine quality.
