Fruit for Ox Hardy Grenache was grown on Robert Natale’s vineyard on Schuller Road, Blewitt Springs. These old bush-vines are grown without irrigation and consistently yield high-quality fruit. Hand picked by Robert himself, approximately five hundred kilograms of hand sorted fruit was whole bunch fermented, while the balance was destemmed and crushed, topping up the first fermenter, and filling a second.

Seeded with Melody yeast, the fermenters were hand plunged three times a day for fifteen days. Once dry, the two batches were kept separate during maturation in older French oak barriques and hogsheads for six months before final blending and bottling.

The Wine Front
A single vineyard of old bush vines at Blewitt Springs in McLaren Vale. One sip and I was hooked. Ok so there’s some warmth to this but the flavour profile and shape are both A Class. It certainly had me diving in for more. Licorice, blueberry, raspberry and woodsy spice notes. It’s lively, buoyant and generous at once. There’s a feeling of luxury to it. But then it’s well-honed through the finish too. Scoring it is difficult; that warmth is noticeable but then the enjoyment factor is ultra high. In the end I was 93-94.

Shipping

Delivery is currently free of charge for both straight and mixed cases Australia Wide. (*excludes remote postcodes in WA and NT) (*excludes fundraising orders)

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.

The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").

Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.

For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.

Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
