2019 Lost Penny
Fire Cart


Going back many years ago, a common part of the vineyard management was that all winter vine cuttings were burnt in a fire cart. The horse would pull the cart between the vineyard rows and cuttings were thrown into the cart, which was continuously burning. The Grenache vines are some of the oldest plantings we have on our family estate, so this special Grenache pays homage to this timeworn vineyard practice.



14.5% vol

Barrel Maturation

Matured in seasoned French oak barrel for 18 months.

Vintage Notes

The 2019 vintage started out with the growing season being dry and it continued that way, with below average rainfall for all of the months. Budburst and early vine growth were delayed in September with below average minimum temperatures, but then caught up during October and November with warmer than average days. January and December resulted in above average maximum temperatures. With February closer to average maximums and below average minimums, making it made for the ideal timing, and resulted in the perfect conditions for ripening the smaller crops. By the end of the second week in April we had finished harvest, which was one of the earliest on record.

Winemaker Notes

Colour: Tile red with purple hue.
Nose: Cherries, spicy and touches of liquorice.
Palate: A mediums structure with mouth-filling cherry and plum flavours. Sweet spice finish to fill and complex.

The Fire Cart Grenache is a light to medium-bodied wine with dominant fruit character and no harsh edges. The smooth cherry ripe flavours along with the spice makes this wine very enjoyable to cuddle up to around a fireplace.
