Paralian Grenache 2023



Paralian Grenache 2023
Marmont Vineyard, Blewitt Springs. Dry Grown on Holocene Sand, East/West aspect, 140-145m altitude. Planted in 1960.

Hand-picked fruit, wild-fermented in a 135-year-old wax lined concrete open fermenter, 20% whole bunch, remainder of fruit destemmed whole berry on top. Gentle cap management with daily hand plunges with the occasional pump over during the peak of ferment over a period of 18-days on skins. Whole bunches were hand squeezed at zero Baume to release the beautiful aromatic carbonic ferment characters back into the wine. Wine was matured on lees for 10 months in a 17 year old 2500L French oak foudre.

From a lower-elevation vineyard in blewitt springs. Supremely refined aromas of blood oranges and damson plums, with a whiff of the moroccan souk. Think cardamon, cloves and fennel seeds. The tannins are accompanied by a belt of gentle reduction. The finish is ferrous and salty, like licking sea salt off quince skin. This should age very well. Drink or hold. 95 Points - Ned Goodwin, JamesSuckling.com
