Grenache – Mourvedre - Tempranillo
A dark and brooding
wine, our GMT blend is a small batch project of ours. Only 120 dozen are made
A blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and 20% Tempranillo, it has all the charm, mystery and seduction one would expect from the great Rhȏnes and Riojas.
Fermented in open top fermentors with 20% whole bunch fermentation and carbonic maceration. Aged for 12 months in 20% new American oak 80% older French oak. Aged in bottle for 6 months prior to release.
The nose offers complex and concentrated aromas of raspberries, strawberries and darker red fruits, intermingled with hints of peppery spice and a delicate touch of violets. The palate is layered with structured tannins that firmly carry a luscious expression of fruit across the tongue, sharpened by a finely balanced acidity. Savoury oak and deliciously chewy tannins combine to build a wine that finishes with a rustic earthiness.
A wine of great persisitence and character.
