Coast View Vineyard Grenache, 2018

Produced by Saison Winery

This is an extremely small production wine, as only 2 barrels (55 cases) of this wine were made. This Grenache is from Coastview Vineyard tucked high in the Gabilan Mountains. Grenache is the smallest planting grape in this vineyard and produces intense and powerful wines that need lots of time in the decanter to open up -- but when it does it explodes on the nose and palate. Bright red fruits, cranberry and mineral, great acidity for food, especially pork and lamb based dishes.

Interesting Winemaking Technique

Grenache is a low yielding parcel of this vineyard site, barely 2-3 clusters of each vine and it is tricky to harvest as the sugars tend to ripen very quickly towards the end of the season.
