Forlorn Hope - Grenache 2017
Region: Calaveras / Sierra Foothills / California
From the Rorick Heritage Vineyard in California. The Grenache from here produces pale, ethereal and elegant wines due to the cool alpine climate and limestone heavy soils.
A bright, elegant and textual Grenache. Beautifully aromatic with notes of strawberry and spice. A beautiful wine for those that love ethereal Grenache, such as myself.
Destemmed fruit fermented in open-top fermenters. Regular pigeage and punchdowns. Pressed to neutral oak puncheons. 12 month elevage. Minimal So2.
