Super light in color, and preferably served chilled this is a party boy Rosé that I want to hang out with all the time. On the nose this is juicy and brambly with spice and fun. The flavors run from blood orange and tangerine to plum, pluot and various other stone fruits. 

 The grapes were hand harvested and transferred to a small open top vessel for 100% whole cluster fermentation. Initial extraction was obtained through traditional foot treading (pigéage à pied). Once primary fermentation was complete, the free-run wine along with a small amount of press wine was transferred to a once-used medium toast Meryrieux French oak barrel. Malolactic fermentation was completed by the end of September. The wine was then racked off the fermentation lees and bottled unfined and unfiltered on March 26, 2021. This lighter expression of Grenache pays homage to traditional winemaking techniques from the time when the vines were planted. 

25 cases produced. 

2020 Brockmeyer Grenache


 Cederquist Vineyard was originally planted in the 1890s and was producing when the Cederquists bought the neighboring property in 1904. The original Grenache plantings of just under 2 acres were planted with 8’x10’ spacing. In the 1940s the vineyard was acquired by the Cederquist family and expanded to its current size of 12 acres with additional plantings of Grenache on 8’x12’ spacing. This wine comes from the original 1890s plantings. 

Well hello there.
