WA 91 : The Powells' entry-level red is the 2016 Riverside Grenache Mataro Shiraz, a 70/20/10 blend that spent 15 months in foudres prior to bottling. It's full-bodied but floral and fine, with a silky texture, cherry fruit and a bit of earthy depth.

From our focus on terroir expression we believe it important that we work the vineyards ourselves and so in the Winter season we prune the vines and maintain through Spring and Summer, then vinify the grapes in Autumn. We use rod and spur for our Shiraz and bush vine pruning methods for our Grenache and Mataro. We employ a minimalistic approach in the vineyard to ensure an honest expression of that vineyard site through to the bottle. Our viticultural management involves organic practices and some of our vineyards are run biodynamically.

The vinification process is highly oxidative; involving open concrete fermenters, pumping over and basket pressing. After fermentation we are highly reductive to retain the wine's character. All wines are aged in French oak and in a combination of large oak foudré, barriques and puncheons.

We aim for freshness of fruit, vibrancy and liveliness but will not compromise vineyard expression. All viticultural and vinification decisions are made based on a balance of these two qualities. By doing so we believe that we create wines that are expressive of their place: our home, the Barossa.
