GRENACHE CINSAUT SHIRAZ MATARO, CO-FERMENTED, FULL AND FIRM

SHIPPED FROM 1ST MARCH 2019

I GREW UP ACROSS THE ROAD FROM A FAMOUS OLD SCHOOL WINEMAKER WHO WAS KNOWN TO BE ONE OF THE BEST BLENDERS OF HIS GENERATION. SO FOR YEARS I FOLLOWED THIS IDEAL IN THE WINES I WAS MAKING. FOR A HANDS OFF WINEMAKER, YOU ACTUALLY FEEL LIKE YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING!

ONE DAY PONDERING LIFE, THE UNIVERSE AND EVERYTHING I THOUGHT ABOUT WHY I HADN’T CHALLENGED THIS NOTION. GRENACHE AND FRIENDS WORK WELL TOGETHER - I’LL JUST PICK THEM WITHIN A FEW DAYS OF EACH OTHER, CHUCK IT ALL IN ONE FERMENTER AND LET THE FERMENT ROCK IT IN ITS OWN WAY.

SO MY THEORY IS THAT THE DIFFERENT VARIETIES BRING SOMETHING COMPLIMENTARY BUT THEY ALSO BRING SOMETHING INDIVIDUAL - SO EQUAL BUT OPPOSITE REACTIONS IN THE FERMENT. I THEN REMEMBERED MY HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICS AND WORKED OUT IT’S ACTUALLY THE SAME WAY A ROCKET WORKS. GO FIGURE.
