Lienert Vineyards Six Pack


James 'Jimmi' Lienert is doing magic things with the fruit his brother John grows in the family vineyards out on the western edge of the Barossa Valley. The red soils, riddled with ancient limestone, produce top notch fruit that has found its way into some of the nation's finest wines such as Penfolds St Henri. Well that may have been the case in years gone by, but these days the pick of the crop finds its way into their own wines, with the very best stuff destined for their Estate releases.

'Jimmi' can also work some magic with the written word, especially when appropriately inspired by a few glasses of the family 'house wine'. His thoughts on Barossa Grenache are especially profound. "They say Grenache is the Barossa Pinot… bugger that! Grenache is in a class all on its own." With labels inspired by memories of a fashionista farming father (Grenache by the wallpaper of his study, Shiraz from the lining of his Sunday best jacket, Mataro from his striking boxer shorts, Roussanne? - apparently from a rare celestial event that happened to coincide with an equally rare draining of the family port barrel), each wine represents an impassioned determination to showcase the utmost potential of their family vineyards.

The 2021 Grenache is the latest edition to the line up. A stunning wine, showing rich, spiced red fruits wrapped around a spine of crunchy tannin, finishing with terrific acidity. I've included 3 bottles of this in a six pack plus a bottle each of the 2017 Shiraz, 2018 Mataro and 2021 Roussanne. Priced at $200 including delivery, you'll save 23% off our wine room price.
