Varietal: Grenache

Regions: Adelaida District, Paso Robles;  Lompoc, Santa Barbara County, CA

Bottle Size: 750ml

One of our favorite varieties, Grenache’s ability to capture fruit deliciousness is almost unrivaled amongst wine grapes. Our 2020 Grenache is a blend from Luna Matta in Adelaida District and Christy&Wise near Lompoc. The Luna Matta Grenache consistently produces amazing structure and minerality and fruit purity. Christy&Wise is a new biodynamically farmed site west of Sta Rita Hills. The tiny bushvine Grenache there yields a very small crop of very concentrated fruit. Yields from our parcel were much lower than expected with the resulting wine turned to the max. The natural acidity and color and flavor were so intense the wine needed to be blended for balance.
