The Holy Trinity Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre 2002
The Holy Trinity is modelled on the Rhone style blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre, which is ideal for the climate and winemaking techniques of the Barossa Valley. We revere the outstanding quality this wine style produces in the Barossa and believe it has the ability to become as well known in the Barossa as Shiraz.
The fruit for this wine is 100% Barossa, handpicked from old, dry grown vines at around 14.2 Baume. The youngest of these vines is 50 years old, while the oldest is well over 110 years old. The varieties are fairly evenly proportioned for this vintage with 39% Grenache, 36% Shiraz and 25% Mourvedre. The 2002 vintage provided an exceptional growing season, producing fruit of incredible concentration and depth and was one of the biggest and best quality vintages on record.
