The Kennedy is a classic blend of old vine Barossa Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre varieties. Named as a tribute to the legendary Barossa Vigneron's who pioneered the planting of the old treasured vineyards,which the Barossa enjoys today. The Grenache fruit is the 'soul' of this blend and is from an exceptionally low yielding 50+ year-old Light Pass vineyard. Originally planted by the Kennedy Family, with ownership eventually being passed onto the charismatic Leo 'Joe' Kennedy who nurtured the vines for many years, selling his prized fruit to local winemakers.
This plush, generously framed wine has become a smash hit with our premium red buyers - so much so that stocks continually sell through no matter how much we buy! It's exciting stuff and you need it in your life.
Sam Kim writes "FIVE STARS 94/100 Wonderfully expressive and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows blackberry, raspberry coulis, warm spice, cocoa and hazelnut characters. The palate is concentrated and plump, delivering waves of delicious flavours, brilliantly supported by velvety texture and silky tannins. Superbly fruited and styled, offering fabulous drinking".
