A medley of red fruit, dried wild flower and baking spice provide a warm, welcoming nose. Aromatics of dusted bramble berry and cranberry compote prelude a soft entry laced with a juicy acidity which captures cherry cola, black currant and caramel swirl for a surprisingly nuanced palate. Fresh pomegranate, ripe raspberry, blood orange zest and vanilla bean carry a gentle, layered essence.
Grenache is a delicate variety, thus gently winemaking is needed to preserve the gorgeous fruit and velvet texture of the variety. After hand-picking in late September, the fruit was destemmed and fermented in small tanks, with regular pumpovers to aid extraction. In order to let the varietal fruit shine through, the wine was aged in neutral oak barrels with 100% being French oak. Following this mantra further, the wine was left unblended in order to let the Grenache speak as a pure, 100% varietal wine.
