2020 'Just Because' Tempranillo Grenache
Inspired by Jane's Addiction "Just Because"
‘Just Because’ as in why not. Whilst this style will evolve over the years it was born from watching the fruit coming into the winery in a couple of very tight years and deciding that a blend could be created ‘Just Because’ that was the fruit we had access to. 2019 we played with Tempranillo, Durif and Viognier, in 2020 we moved to Tempranillo and Grenache. As this fruit came in from two different growers this year we didn’t have the ability to do a co-ferment but did maintain the carbonic style with both varieties undergoing wild ferment in tank with 50% carbonic. 6 months in old barrels.
Really interesting nose with gingerbread and chocolate brownie, layered with star anise, redcurrants and fresh berries. Palate contains fine tannin structure with bright fresh strawberry, fruit cake, glazed cherry & ginger.
