Showing beautifully and bright, we've been saving this wine for this year's Grenache Day!
Fermented and aged in 20% concrete, 20% stainless steel, and 60% neutral barrel. Showing incredibly well with promise to be the best yet, with intense aromatics, candied ginger and a rich texture and a lingering finish. 13.1% alcohol. 200 cases.
A bright tongue tingling sparkling treat! This small 25 case lot of Grenache Blanc is co-fermented with Wickson Apples from our neighbors at Tilted Shed Ciderworks. Aged in neutral barrel for 10 months, this sparkling co-ferment is a perfect entry into fall with notes of lemon zest, apricot and honeysuckle. After our first vintage, we promised to ourselves we'd never hand bottle again, but glad we made an exception for this beauty.
Due to very limited supply, club only. Max 2 bottles per person, sorry!
Eight years in the making! We planted our Grenache vineyard in 2011, back when folks thought we were crazy for doing so. Named for Austin and Arya, our two Aussie Shepherds who frolic here everyday, our Grenache is planted in narrow 3' x 3' rows, farmed organically and hand-tended by us. Native yeast fermented, 16 months in neutral barrel, minimal sulfur.
We are pleased to introduce our first, 1 barrel lot (25 cases) of Grenache Gris from our Estate Farm, the Daenen Block. Grenache Gris is the rare grey skinned relative of Grenache. Our vineyard is 100% hand farmed by us with no tractors or tilling, planted in a rare, dense 3 feet x 3 feet spacing. Our 3rd grey skin variety, fermented on the skins for 5 days for a light handed orange wine, savory and approachable.
We are honored to offer you this special wine, in tribute to Saralee Kunde, who left us in 2014. Saralee was an unparalleled leader and heroine in Sonoma County agriculture, and a personal inspiration. Catie's Corner is named for her daughter. This vineyard was the first planting in the Russian River, made possible by Saralee's commitment to varietal diversity.
The Grenache blanc always undergoes 3+ years of bottling aging, until its complex aromatics, salinity and minerality come fully together like a symphony.
