One of two single vineyard Grenache that are my attempt to claim place over winemaker as the most significant influence over a wines quality. All that needs doing in the cellar is to 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.
Red - juicy, smooth, medium-bodied
Turkish delight and musk lollies, rosewater and exotic spice
Best paired with the Old McDonald Grenache and a Navarin of Lamb
