Stag's Hollow Grenache 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBC's best grenache, yet again. Ample cinnamon and crimson berries swirl around a juicy strawberry core, soft and round and aided with perfumed plum and cherry, but kept snappy with acidity to a cloud of white pepper to finish. From Penticton and Osoyoos, this whole berry grenache had 40 percent of ripe stems added back in before ferment and 72 hour cold soak. After ferment this was pressed into French puncheons and aged six months post MLF before being racked and blended with 10 percent syrah (??), and then bottled without fining or filtration. This ripe red carries all of grenache's inherent warmth and generosity, yet feels distinctly Okanagan.Tasted: 28 November 2017Tasted by: Prices:
