2020 "Pezzonovante" Grenache

2020 "Pezzonovante" Grenache

GRENACHE IS HISTORIC, A LITTLE FORGOTTEN AND YET A STAR VARIETY OF THE SWAN VALLEY.  THIS FRUIT COMES FROM 65+ YEAR OLD BUSH VINES PLANTED BY THE ZANNINO FAMILY.  THE VINEYARD IS NEAR THE BASE OF THE DARLING SCARP CONSISTING OF GRAVEL AND SAND OVER COFFEE ROCK.    


WE PICK OUR GRENACHE EARLIER THAN IS TRADITIONAL IN THE VALLEY.  IT IS ALLOWED TO NATURALY FERMENT WITH SOME WHOLE BUNCH AND EXTENDED MACERATION.  IT IS MATURED IN OLD OAK AND THE BEST BARRELS SELECTED TO MAKE THIS WINE. LOW SO2 MAXIMISES FRUIT EXPRESSION, UNFINED AND UNFILTERED. 


A BRIGHT MODERN EXPRESSION OF GRENACHE.  RASPBERRY AND DARK CHERRY FRUITS.  A MIX OF FLORAL AND EARTHY TONES ALONG WITH DRIED HERB.  POISED AND DELICATE WITH FINE AND LONG TANNINS GIVING THE WINE SHAPE.
