Varietal: 100% Grenache

AVA: Central Coast, California

Vineyard: Sourced from select sun-soaked vineyards across the coastal reaches of Monterey and San Benito Counties, capturing the essence of the diverse Central Coast terroir.

Winemaking: Crafted with minimal intervention by winemaker Ian Brand of Le P'tit Paysan, known for his focus on Spanish varietals. Grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed, followed by spontaneous fermentation using native yeasts and minimal sulfur. Aged for 10 months in neutral oak foudres to preserve the purity of the fruit.

Production: This is a small-production gem, with only a limited number of cases released. Each bottle tells a story of passion for Grenache and its unique expression in the California Coastal climate.

Alcohol: 13.5% ABV - A refreshingly balanced alcohol level, allowing the delicate nuances of the Grenache to shine without overpowering the palate.

Tasting Notes:

  • Color: A delicate pale ruby, hinting at the wine's vibrant personality.
  • Nose: Clean and inviting aromas of ripe black and red cherries, mingled with intriguing notes of sarsaparilla and a whisper of the sea air.
  • Palate: Lively and harmonious, with juicy flavors of cherry and raspberry dancing on a backdrop of soft earthiness and subtle spice. The wine shows beautiful tension and acidity, creating a long and elegant finish with a gentle mineral whisper.

Overall: La Marea Grenache 2019 is a captivating expression of California Grenache, capturing the essence of sun-kissed vineyards and cool ocean breezes in every sip. It's a wine for those seeking a unique and vibrant journey, where elegance meets complexity and the whisper of the sea lingers on the palate.
