Stag's Hollow Renaissance Grenache 2014

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIt’s good to know that Stag’s Hollow continues to persevere where grenache is concerned. Winter kill is a problem with this variety hence you won’t find much of it in Canada. Too bad because we love how it’s progressing in BC. The nose has beautiful white pepper, character with a coating of cedar as it wafts from the glass. Its red fruit nose is equally expressive evoking cherries, cranberries and wild strawberries all with a sagebrush/savoury background. Best of all is the fresh, peppery finish. Juicy, charming and delicious this red wine makes a statement that we can be different. The final blend contains 3 percent syrah. The oak is French and perfectly incidental. Oh and yes, to make sure the delicate Okanagan fruit esters remain intact it is finished under a beautiful glass Vinolok closure.Tasted: 28 December 2015Tasted by: Prices: BC 35.00 winery direct Producer: Stag's Hollow Winery and VineyardDistributors: HQ Wine + Spirits
