Our journey with old vine Grenache continues with the 2016 vintage. Dusty tannins give the wine presence while its perfume dances from olfactory into flavour profile. Lingering aromatics of raspberry, blue cornflowers and dried tangerine are carried across the palate with silty fine-boned tannins and cleansing acidity.
The Grenache captures the rise of energy we feel in spring and autumn – the bookends of winter – as we enjoy that erupting explosion of colour onto our landscape. It’s crimson and all things red berry, the sweetness of wild flowers in a meadow just out of sight, carried to you by the wind.
As the cool weather approaches, gather your kin and hunker down with a buttery, flaky pork pithivier and a bottle of the 2016 Grenache. A wine with story: see where it takes you...
