2018 Salengo Grenache
The Coble Ranch
August 27th, 2018
Aged 18 Months in Neutral French Oak
The Salengo Grenache comes in from the highest elevation in the Coble Rach Vineyard. Planted on gravelly loam and red clay soil, the fruit allows for a complimentary balance of minerality and red fruit characteristics. Once received at the winery, the Salengo Grenache is optically sorted and fermented in a small lot. Optimizing the time on the skins for a concentrated fruit and tannin profile, the grenache has an extended cold soak before fermentation and then pressed in a traditional basket press. The Grenache is aged in neutral French oak barrels.
