MINISTRY OF CLOUDS GRENACHE 2015/2016

Wine Region: McLaren Vale, Australia

Grape: Grenache

Tasting Notes 

Entwined within a complex deep core of red and purple fruit aromas, violets, earth and herb tinged; the palate is pure with old-vine flesh, calming depth and purity, but kept necessarily fresh by grainy tannins and a bright line of natural.

About the winery

Termed a ‘virtual winery’ Julian Forewood and Bernice Ong seek out the very best grapes from different regions of Australia in order to make refined wines that are pure and expressive. The name symbolises the relinquishing of their past security and structure (Ministry), for the freedom, independance and adventure (Clouds) inherent in their own venture. As James Halliday writes: “Trying to pick highlights is futile, simply because there are so many of them, and so few words available.” No surprise they are one of James’ best new wineries for 2015.
