Description

Handcrafted barrel-aged Grenache

After a 3 year wait we are pleased to announce the release of all 700 bottles of the Barrel Select Grenache 2017. This wine is the personal labour of love of Vincent, our head winemaker using our 36-year-old parcel of Grenache. We only make this wine in years when Vincent pronounces that the fruit is perfect for this exceptional wine.

The grapes were hand-harvested at optimum maturity by Vincent himself early on 1 October 2017 with alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature in small open tanks and daily hand pigeage. The wine is then hand pressed and racked by gravity to barrel to complete alcoholic fermentation and then to undergo malolactic fermentation and ageing.

Tasting Notes

Expressing the rich fruit profile of Grenache with intense aromas of raspberries and subtle Christmas spices giving way to chocolate orange palate with well integrated tanins. An excellent companion to sweet duck or pork dishes, Mediterranean style fish dishes and strong cheeses.
