Grape: 100% Grenache
Region: Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard, Santa Barbara County
About: Winemaker, Angela Osborne, only produces Grenache wine from vineyard-specific sites along the Central Coast. Tribute to Grace is named after her grandmother, Grace. "Our eleventh vintage of the wine that defines the joy of Spring! In 2022 we further increased our selection from our beloved 'Mesa' block (our single-vineyard source), which brings a lifted ethereal dimension to the aromatics, and my tasting notes indeed include skyward jonquil. The Mesa clusters were foot-tread by two favourite Jen(n)s and I - gracedance 2022 playlist here - and left on skins for just 24 hours to impart their gorgeous tonality and texture, before being pressed with their clone Noir/2 sisters. A long, slow, cool fermentation ensued. The finished wine aged sur lie in stainless before being bottled under a Sagittarius moon on Febraury 16, 2023: my dear Nana Grace's 101st birthday."
Notes: Strawberry and rhubarb with slight allspice note and medium acidity
