2019 Huntington Estate Grenache

AUD $32.00 inc. gst
Quantity:
The Great Grenache project continues! This 2019 Grenache is different to the 2018 (which with hindsight, I should have put a reserve label on). Where the 2018 is Ursula Andress emerging from the sea in Dr No (Amazonian, with a sensual, feminine power), the 2019 is more about the pretty than the power – and closer to the 2017 in style. A delicious, fruity, light, easy drinking red that’s perfect for a summer lunch, or lightly chilled as an alternative to white wine in the evening.

THE WINEMAKING 
Fruit from our original Block 22 plus the first crop from the 3 year old vines of Block 15 was harvested March 8th 2019 at 13.8 Baume, marking the end of the 2019 Vintage at Huntington Estate. After a week on skins fermenting at a low temperature to preserve the fresh fruit character, the wine was racked into our oldest barrels for 6 months to collect very subtle oak characters perceived in flavour more than structure. The wine was bottled at the beginning of October 2019.

TASTING NOTE 
Bursting with fresh red fruit (raspberries and red cherries), a hint of floral aromatics plus a dash of light spice. The wine is fresh and vibrant, soft and long. Light to medium bodied.
