93 PTS THE WINE FRONT

The KENNEDY is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vigneron's 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.

Tasting notes:

Deep crimson in colour this wine is bursting with aromas of ripe cherry and plum backed with an array of sweet spice and licorice notes. Complex ripe red fruit characters amid a fleshy mid-palate core of wild berries and spice create enduring layers of flavour. Soft and velvety tannins persist the length of the palate that finished with some savoury nuances.
