Down The Rabbit Hole 2021 Grenache


This single vineyard, old vine grenache is an elegant dance on the palette. Bright red fruits with a beautiful floral lift meet over an underlying earthiness.

Vintage Notes
2021 was a vintage of quality over quantity. The season began with good winter rainfall, followed by a mild start to spring. However, the total rainfall was below average for the third year in a row. Summer started with intense head mid-lateDecember. Fortunately, the rest of the season was cooler than average with some late rain in the season, which enabled the vines to recover from the early heat and ripen effectively.

Winemaking Notes
The fruit was destemmed and crushed gently, then pumped over twice daily for 8 days. We kept the ferment cool to retain the bright primary fruit characters. Following ferment, the wine was pressed and transferred into seasoned French oak barrels for 6 months. Filtered prior to bottling.
