Chaffey Brothers La Resistance

Chaffey Brothers La Resistance

A vinous rematch of the famous 1811 battle at Barrosa Ridge where Spain and France collided. La Résistance! takes up the fight for the traditional French varieties of the Barossa and pitches gnarly old vine Grenache, Syrah & Mourvèdre into defence against the invading foreign marauders.

OUR HANDMADE MINIMAL INTERVENTION WINES COME FROM INDIVIDUAL PARCELS OF LOW YIELDING VINEYARDS, SPREAD THROUGHOUT THE BAROSSA AND EDEN VALLEYS. DRAWING ON TRUE OLD VINES AND COMPLEX SOILS, WE SEE OURSELVES AS PART PARFUMIER – DISCOVERING DELICATE AROMATICS; PART HISTORIAN – PRESERVING THE PURITY OF PRISTINE FRUIT; AND PART MAD SCIENTIST – REVELLING IN THE LOST ART OF SMALL BATCH BLENDING

Winemaker: Daniel Chaffey Hartwig and Theo Engela
Winemaking notes: Grenache makes up 44% of this wine, delivering a Grenache-centric GSM, with elegant Syrah (30%) and spicy Mourvèdre (26%) adding tell-tale definition and structure. The Grenache is from three old vineyards, delicate fruit from a 66 year old cool Williamstown site (on the border of the Adelaide Hills) is blended with more robust darker fruited Grenache from a 71 year old Lyndoch Vineyard and a 51 year old vineyard in Vine Vale. Early harvest Syrah is from Williamstown, Stockwell and from the Heinrich vineyard in the Lyndoch foothills, which unites with the lovely blue-fruit characters of Syrah from a small Northern Eden Valley vineyard on the outskirts of Angaston. The remainder of the blend is powerful, spicy Mourvèdre from Vine Vale.. This is definitely a Grenache-driven GSM! 12 months Elevage in seasoned (3 – 8yr old) French oak Hogsheads has provided the perfect framework/ support to the deep-fruited, dark cherry, strawberry and mineral laden (graphite/ferrous) palate with a lovely savoury lick of supple fine-grain tannin. Gentle refreshing acidity gives great line and drives the brooding and delicious fruit through to a lingering finish.
