2017 Carr Grenache Whole Cluster
Los Olivos District
50 Cases Produced
This head trained Grenache was made using our hand rolled whole cluster technique. Each cluster was placed in small fermenters where they were very gently rolled by hand making sure not to break any of the stems. The yeast penetrates the skin of the berry and ferments the juice inside allowing for optimum skin contact during fermentation. The pressure inside the berries builds until they explode. This approach to winemaking creates a very delicate fruitful wine with a silky rich finish.
