Austin Hope Grenache is comprised of three Grenache clones, Tablas Creek Vine Selection #2, Clone 362, Garnacha Clone 814 (Spain). The vineyard is planted in high-density, 5’ x 5’ spacing and managed carefully to keep cluster counts low. At harvest, the grapes are hand-picked and fermented separately by vineyard block in five-ton, open-top tanks with daily pump overs and extended maceration. It aged for 8 months in 35% New French Oak.

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby colored, the 2014 Austin Hope Grenache has an aromatic intensity marked by dried red and black cherry, strawberries and rhubarb, while dusty saddle leather, dried rose petals, savory herbs, cardamom and sweet vanilla add to its complexity. On the palate, bright, juicy red fruits along with big, gripping tannins show just how elegant and powerful Grenache can be, while being perfectly balanced by the acidity.
