K&L Notes

Winemaker's notes: "This wine shows off the best characters of Grenache; Light yet vibrant colour, pretty yet complex nose, elegant yet textural palate; Traditional aromatics of strawberry, raspberry and turkish delight combine with a tropical fruit influence that provides additional aromatic lift. On the palate fresh strawberries provide the vibrant fruit you expect and the persistent tannins provide the savoury element of surprise. Spicy flavours of nutmeg and thyme also line the palate creating additional complexity and length. Components were destemmed on arrival to the winery prior to fermentation. The winemaking was split across three separate fermentations, the major component (40%) was put through an extended maceration lasting a total of 50 days on skins. The second component (30%) was picked late in the season and cold soaked for 5 days before fermentation and the final component (30%) was picked early in the season and put through a short fermentation with a large portion of whole berries. All three components were pressed directly to oak and put through natural malolactic fermentation followed by 10 months maturation before blending and bottling in February 2016."

    If you poured this blind the first thing you'd think is that it was a Pinot Noir. The color is astonishing, light and ethereal. The wine is equally beautiful and elegant,but not lacking for powerful structure, this wine feels fresh and very complex . There is spectacular sweet fruit, raspberries in particular and an elegant oak treatment. If you're looking to probe the upper echelon of quality Grenache, this wine must not be missed.
