The Kennedy is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vignerons who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards, which the Barossa enjoys today. The Grenache fruit is the 'soul' of this blend and is from an exceptionally low yielding 50+ year-old Light Pass vineyard. Originally planted by the Kennedy Family, with ownership eventually being passed onto the charismatic Leo 'Joe' Kennedy who nurtured the vines for many years, selling his prized fruit to local winemakers.
Deep crimson in colour and bursting with dark cherry, red-licorice and complex savoury spice aromas. The palate is very approachable, melding ripe fleshy fruits and chewy textural tannins this wine has excellent length and richness. Enjoy upon release or carefully cellar for the medium term.
