- At a time when Grenache was considered unfashionable, Chester acquired many old bush vine, overgrown and abandoned vineyards. These vineyards still have a slightly dishevelled appearance, but they are back producing very low yields of exceptional fruit. The 2013 Derelict Vineyard is simply a delicious drink, a fine example of the resurgence in popularity of McLaren Vale Grenache. The nose and palate are brimming with sweet, pure fruits. Stewed rhubarb, fresh blueberry and raspberry jubes. A faint whiff of spice and an ever so mild earthiness add complexity. Generous and juicy at first then tied together with a fine gritty tannin that adds length, savouriness and minerality.
