Holiday Collector's Series

Limited Edition - 2020 Estate Grenache

This year we are sharing a little something extra from our holiday traditions. When the World’s Fair was held in St. Louis in 1904, my grandfather, August Busch Sr., discovered an incredible artist named Oscar Berninghaus and commissioned him to create pieces for our family’s personal collection. One of his paintings has always been my favorite, as it reminds me of the magic of the holidays and our cherished tradition of horse-drawn carriage rides through freshly fallen snow.

The Estate Grenache is made entirely from fruit grown on our estate vineyard, tucked into the slopes of Folded Hills. The site is meticulously farmed by grower Ruben Solorzano. Together, Ruben and winemaker Michael Brughelli shepherd the grapes, and Michael selects the optimal moment for harvest.

Tasting Notes
Fragrant fruity aromatics of blood orange, watermelon, and freshly picked strawberries. The palate follows with a harmony of dried herbs and sweet tobacco. The bright acidity and weighty structure lead to a smooth yet complex wine.

Winemaker Notes
The fruit was cold soaked for 3 days prior to warming the must and allowing native fermentation to commence. After 18 days on skins, these were pressed and aged for 10 months in 9% new French oak, to enhance texture and depth in the wine, while preserving the purity and transparency of the site.
