Depending on your perspective, to be Righteous can imply many be virtuous...awesome, amazing, cool and exciting...the ultimate of anything...bordering on divine. From our perspective, our very best Grenache is all of these things!

Since 2005, each vintage we’ve bottled tiny quantities of what we reckon to be supreme, single vineyard examples of the Barossa’s heritage grape varieties under the Righteous label.

The Righteous Grenache hails from a vineyard at Moppa in the Northern Barossa, planted in deep sand over red clay, with ironstone scattered throughout. The fruit was picked by hand, gently crushed and fermented in open fermenters with regular pump-overs. After pressing the wine spends two years in 40% new French puncheons, with the balance going into old oak barrels between 3 and 6 years old.

A stellar vintage , particularly for Grenache and Mataro. I haven’t seen quality of these varieties like this since 2009. The wines are rich and dense with fantastic balance of acidity and tannin, but this particular vineyard performed head and shoulders above the others.

Perfect fruit expression and a vibrant spicy lift. Delicious!!

Trust me – you’ll need at least a sixer of this gear if you’re the type to try and cellar - three for now, three for the cellar!!!!
