Grenache, Martian Ranch, 2021

Grenache, Martian Ranch, 2021


Martian Ranch & Vineyard

Los Alisos AVA

Demeter Certified Biodynamic


Tasting notes — Fresh strawberry and cool mint on the nose. A rhubarb loaf laced with fried sage and sea salt. Herbal, crisp, fruity, and mineral. The texture is playful and crunchy.


Vinification — Alban clone Grenache was picked on October 1, 2021. Gently destemmed to leave a majority of the whole berries intact created a longer, slower native fermentation that I think added a crackle to the palate. Pressed and aged in nuetral French oak barriques for 10 months. Racked off the lees once in the Spring, bottled unfined and unfiltered in July 2022.
