Grenache as it should be: feral and uninhibited. Intense bouquet of rose water, wild thyme and rosemary, and Christmas spices.
Bing cherry, red fruit, kirsch, and roasted meat. A vivid and lengthy finish makes this hard to resist. Unabashedly feminine.
The fruit was harvested by hand in mid-October. Approximately half of the fruit was destemmed and used for whole berry fermentation; the other half was left intact for whole cluster fermentation. A five-day cold soak was used.
The wine was aged for seventeen months in all neutral French oak. The wine was never racked and left to stay on lees for its entire life cycle. A considerable amount of effort was made to expose the wine to as little oxygen as possible.
