Around 30% whole clusters were tipped into open fermenters with the balance crushed on top, header boards were placed on day 2 of ferment. Ferment was the result of indigenous and cultured yeast. Temperatures were allowed to reach 30C with pump overs performed 2 times daily reducing to nil later in ferment. After 9 and 11 days on skins the fruit was basket pressed and transferred into older puncheons to undergo malo-lactic fermentation. Post malo the wine was then left 3 weeks before SO2 was added in place, the wine was then left on lees and topped regularly. The wine was racked and blended late November 2021 and underwent filtration prior to bottling.

The Grape


Grenache, (or Garnacha), is one of the most important red grape varieties in the world and is responsible for some of the most expensive and collected wines out there. It's the key variety for making elegant Châteauneuf-du-Pape and rich GSM's, but is brilliant as a stand alone variety and makes wines with a medium body, but intense and often spicy flavours of deep red fruits, black cherry, charred plum, leather, blood orange, dried herbals and cinnamon. From crisp and crunchy, to velvety and rich, this versatile grape is awesome!
