Landsborough Grenache 2016
Australie - Pyrenees - Victoria
Oeil : bright ruby red.
Nez : raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and spice.
Bouche : bright summer fruits with a white pepper and spice finish, complemented by fine tannins. A full bodied wine with a long finish.
Les conseils du Sommelier : Recommended food pairing: leg of lamb, game terrines, mushrooms. Serving temperature: 15-16°C. Ageing potential: more than 5 years.
Cépage(s) : Grenache.
Vendanges : Handpicked in late March, at optimal ripeness, Grenache’s potential relies on careful vineyard management and meticulous flavour assessment at the time of harvest.
Sol : A mixture of clay, siltstone, quartz and shale.
Vinification : The fruit was destemmed and transferred into a stainless steel tank where it was kept cool until fermentation started naturally. A 4-5 week maceration allowed for maximum colour and the tannins to soften.
Elevage : The wine was aged in concrete tanks for 12 months.
