2013 Austin Hope GSM

$65.00

The 2013 Austin Hope GSM was grown on the Hope Family Vineyard, located just 20 miles from the Pacific Ocean in the Templeton Gap region of Paso Robles. The site’s rocky soils of clay and limestone make it ideal for the Rhone varieties to which it is planted. The vines are managed carefully to keep cluster counts low, resulting in fruit with great intensity and rich berry flavors.

Grapes were hand-picked and fermented separately by vineyard block in five-ton, open-top tanks. After daily pump-overs (for color and tannin extraction) for 10 days, the wines were aged for 12 months in primarily new French oak barrels. The Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre were blended in Dec 2014, and bottled January 2015.
