Tasting Notes: Summer Peach, Gardenia and White Tea
The Grenache Gris is one of our favorite wines! We have been making it since 2013. This vintage we foot stomped the grapes and left the juice on the skins for 24 hours and then pressed the grapes. The wine began fermentation in stainless steel before it was moved to ferment and age in our sandstone jars. Typically the amount of color on the skins of the grapes varies vintage to vintage based on the canopy of the vines throughout the growing season and for 2021 we wanted more skin contact than the year before. This wine always has a haze to it, so instead of fining or filtering, we leave it in its natural state. It’s so much fun to see what this wine brings us each year. We recommend storing at 55 degrees or below.
