K&L Notes

Brad Hickley is a Chicago native who followed his passion for food to New York to become the first U.S. sommelier to work with Daniel Boulud. He went to McLaren Vale to work a harvest and ultimately fell in love with the place--and with local vigneron Nicole Thorpe. Together, they farm Omensetter Vineyard. Winemaker's Notes: "Two parcels of Grenache and Mataro from a Biodynamically farmed site in the distinctive sandy soils of Blewitt Springs were hand-picked on the same day and co-fermented using wild yeast in an open fermenter for six weeks. Eight months in five trusty French hogsheads further forged the fine red berry tones of Grenache (70%) with the savoury spice of Mataro (30%). Bottled unfined and unfiltered. An elixir-like headiness to the perfume, notes of orange peel and spice from the Mataro co-mingles nicely with the lively, bright red fruit and chocolate notes of the Grenache. Deceptively lush despite its medium body and dusty tannins, the GR/M bristles with acidity and strikes a nice counterbalance between the openly fruity nature of Grenache and the darker, more brooding grunt of Mataro. A tip of the hat to the wines of Bandol; it's spicy and wild on a warm and tightly focused frame."
