Grenache Nouveau, Dry Creek Valley, 2020
“go your way”, is our take on a Grenache Nouveau.
It’s sourced from a small vineyard and made in a completely unique manner to produce a dynamite example of a fresh and zesty red wine. The vineyard, just two acres, is biodynamically farmed from vines supplied by legendary grower Randall Grahm, the original “Rhone Ranger.” We brought the fruit in and made the wine using the carbonic maceration process whereby the entire grape cluster is put into a stainless tank and sealed under a blanket of carbon dioxide. There, a unique type of enzymatic fermentation begins within the grapes themselves. This extracts delicate fruit and floral aromatics and flavors. The tank is opened and treaded by foot every day as native yeasts finish the job. The wine is bottled early with just a little of the natural CO2 and acidity to make it literally mouthwatering! This process captured the earthy quality and funkiness of an old world Grenache, but is produced in a new way that promotes the fresh and bright notes of the fruit – a truly perfect blend of old and new world winemaking.
We think it is extraordinary!
