2016 Brecon Grenache Adelaida

2014 Brecon Tannat

It's so hard blending in the gloom of January. For Grenache, your grey matter really needs to be full of long heady summer evenings, picking fresh strawberries and raspberries while prancing gayly through an alpine meadow ala the Sound of Music. Perhaps we should do our blending in a florist or a jam factory next time!

This the only style of red wine where we try to encapsulate those summer fruit impressions/aromatics. By using a complete oxygen barrier/seal, such that, it  “lets flavor flood out” as you pour into your glass. Our winemaking reflects this ethos by being as complex as possible without losing those primary fermentation characters.

~91% from the iconic Glenrose Vineyard. In other words it’s only 4% shy of the 95% requirement for being a single vineyard offering. Now, before you ask why there is some Cabernet Sauvignon in there, perhaps we should explain. This was a small trial lot of rose style wine we tinkered with in 2015. Aromatically and weight wise this complemented the Grenache while actually adding some subtle structure. P.S Don’t tell the wife I made some rose. She has been asking for one for years!
