2020 LATTA Vino Quality Release Grenache
2020 was a shocker all around, in the context of viticulture it is one of the smallest seasons to date in Victoria & beyond. I've always taken Sangiovese & Cabernet Sauvignon from the Shays Flat site when permitted. So when the Grenache became available it was a massive life line for our production! as well as the excitement to make Grenache from such a beautifully well farmed vineyard.
Farmed by Cory Hope all Certified Organic. About 20% whole bunch, Zero Adds as always, basket pressed after a week & a bit, élevage for 12 months in 228L & 500L Casks, zero SO2. It’s a pretty serious wine loads of detail, a very fine expression of Shays Flat. Such a Quality Release.
