This is the ultimate dry grown vineyard - Casa Rossa. The vines have never seen water and the quantity of fruit is directly proportional to the rainfall. Some years this 50 year old block produces a few hundred kilos, in a good year maybe a ton. Winemaker Dan Eggleton put this in the best French oak and is extremely happy with the result. Anima means "soul" in Italian. This is the soul of Ben Murray Wines' little part of the Barossa.

Review by James Halliday released 1 August 2020: "Hand-picked, whole berries wild-fermented, new and old oak, neither fined nor filtered. This is a lovely Barossa grenache with bright, clear colour, slipping in some fine-grained tannins amongst the cherry fruits. 94/100”
