One of the most planted grapes worldwide, outside of the US, Grenache has one of the longest ripening cycles of all grapes. The clonal material now available domestically is causing a resurgence of this wonderfully dynamic grape.
Partial carbonic maceration on the stems and without sulfur. The 2018 spent nearly a month on the skins and was lightly pressed in a basket press. Most of the wine was aged in concrete Amphora for a long malolactic fermentation with a small amount going into neutral puncheon. Aged 10 months. Filtered for clarity and stability. 20 ppm SO2 at bottling.
