In 2010, acclaimed Australian winemaker Michael Twelftree was offered a small plot of 83-year-old Grenache vines in the hills above McLaren Vale. Twelftree Wines is an exclusive collection of six wines handmade in a boutique style. Each wine illustrates purity of fruit, like a food-friendly blend of Grenache and Mataro and a crisp Grenache Rosé, and reflects Twelftree's deliberate, hands-on style.
This light cherry-colored wine is full of lifted spice, blood plums, fresh mince, mint and earth, with flavors of dense fruit flavors and expressive tannins on the finish.
This inky dark wine offers a complex aroma of mint, smoke, plums, ginger and spice. The concentrated fruit flavors are focused and layered, with rounded tannins and plum, white pepper and spice on the finish.
This light cherry-red wine has notes of rosewater, strawberries, fennel, cherry and rhubarb, with a mouth-watering texture and floral flavors. Perfect for spring and summer, this is a serious rosé with a dry finish and amazing depth.
This deep red wine has strong palate of purple fruits. Before bottling, a small amount of Mataro was blended to add balance. The mineral and rose petal aromas work seamlessly with dark fruit flavors on the finish.
Blended Grenache and Mataro delivers plush fruit flavors with meaty, earthy spice notes. A deep, concentrated black color in the glass, with aromas of fresh rose petals, lavender, iodine, roasted meats, cloves and dried plums.
