2021 Brielle Grenache

2021 Brielle Grenache

A cooler than average growing season, with no major heatwaves, allowed for a slower ripening period than the last few years, which really helped flavour development.

Tasting Notes

  • Colour – Bright violet purple.
  • Aroma – Aromatic, bright lifted nose, with a combination of cherry, red plums, raspberry and violet florals. Undertones of cherry cola, white pepper and sweet spices.
  • Palate – Medium bodied, vibrant and fresh. Pristine varietal Grenache flavours of juicy, fleshy red cherry and plum. Jubey but also with savoury elements and sweet baking spices. Balanced by fine chalky tannin giving great structure and texture all supported by fresh acidity.

Vineyard
Notes

A cooler than average growing season, with no major heatwaves, allowed for a slower ripening period than the last few years, which really helped flavour development. This allowed us to harvest at optimum maturity without the baumes being too high, this can only be achieved with extended cool ripening periods.
