2018 Mosier Hills Grenache
This is a lifted and transparent expression of Grenache with strong aromas of cinnamon, violets and lavender. The ethereal and energetic palate tastes of strawberry, cherry and fresh off-the-stem salmon-berries. A very cohesive and expressive wine, it is a treasure from the 2018 vintage.
Proudly featuring Columbia Gorge fruit from our estate in Mosier, Oregon. Organically grown with intention and great care. Harvested September 19th.
35% whole cluster fermentation in open top stainless steel fermenter. Aged in concrete egg and 600L neutral oak for 15 months. 70 cases produced.
It is rare to find a 100% Grenache with such transparency & vibrancy. The concrete egg seemed to be the perfect vessel to mature this wine for 15 months while maintaining freshness. A stunning example from the cool climate nature of the Columbia Gorge AVA.
