2020 Grant Grenache
Our Grant Grenache takes its name not only from Grant’s Farm, our ancestral home but also from President Ulysses S. Grant, who was its original Farmsteader.
The 2020 Grant Grenache was sourced from two blocks of the Folded Hills Estate, Golden Eagle and Ulysses. Picked and vinified separately, the fruit is de-stemmed and fermentation is done naturally with only ambient yeast. We then foot-tread to maintain the health of the fermentation and to integrate the vibrant characteristics of the de-stemmed fruit. It is then aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, with only 12.9% new French oak, to enhance texture and depth in the wine without overwhelming the subtlety of Grenache. After aging, the wine is bottled to preserve freshness and purity of flavor.
