2021 Grenache Gris
Estate Vineyard, Skin fermented
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. The Grenache Gris has a bit more structure and soft tannins the the Trousseau Gris, and a darker orange color.
