Food Suggestions

For food pairing it works well with pork belly and lamb. Both savoury and sweet elements can be used in the food.

In The Cellar

The grapes undergo a 24 hour cold maceration before inoculation with a specific yeast culture. The Grenache completes alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in the stainless steel tanks before being racked to barrel, usually within six months. Wine is aged in 1st and 2nd fill French oak barrels for approximately 14-18 months depending on the vintage.The 2015 Grenache spent 12 months in oak, six months in 1st and the remainder in 2nd fill barrels.
