Stag's Hollow Renaissance Grenache 2017

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinter kill is the only issue holding grenache in check across Canada, but with climate change, it’s clear BC could be a home away from home for this fantastic European variety. The nose is all wild cherries this year with a dusting of white pepper, and it spills across the palate. Its red fruit is equally intense, again led by expressive wild strawberries and black cherries dusted in savoury dried herbs. The finish is ridiculously juicy and peppery. Seriously good. The oak is French but hardly noticeable amongst the silky texture. It has finished under a beautiful glass Vinolok closure, so it can never be corked.Tasted: 22 March 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct Producer: Stag's Hollow Winery and VineyardDistributors: Winery Direct
