2018 Grenache

2018 Grenache Edaphos - Ernest Vineyards
$38.00   750mL

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.
