SKU: SCPOLDGRE19
One of two single vineyard Grenache that are an attempt to claim place over winemaker as the most significant influence over a wines quality. All that's left to do is counteract the two misguided extremes of varietal style: sweet and syrupy at one end, under-ripe, tannin-free giggle juice at the other. Truly great Grenache is neither. Truly great Grenache has aromatics and texture with vibrance and energy. It unfurls gradually with air and, most importantly, speaks clearly of soil and season.

”Pinot with a Mediterranean vibe. Full, but feels ethereal. Firm, but feels svelte. A mid ruby at best. Succulent. A meld of fecund raspberry, root spice, clove, cranberry and rosehip, drawn at the waist by a firm skein of saline, puckering tannin, sandy and pumice-like. The founder of the contemporary grenache zeitgeist. Fine.”
– Ned Goodwin MW
