San Francisco Chronicle Double Gold Winner 

2015 GRENACHE

 

Silvaspoon Vineyard, Lodi

 
 The 2015 Grenache has a purple-garnet color of medium depth with bright youthful hues.  The aroma of the 2015 wine is loaded with ripe red fruits; raspberry, strawberry and cherry.  Limited to just six months of aging in small oak barrels the scent of this wine is firmly focused on the floral fruit character that is Grenache, and the bouquet is limited to a suggestion of buttered toast. On the palate succulent flavors of currants, and marionberry are delivered by a wine with a rich creamy texture. There are some notes of oak and a bit of flint in a finish that is supple and lingering.
 
Grenache is one of the most widely planted red grapes in the world. Originating in the Aragon region of northern Spain, Grenache is successfully grown in the south of France, Sardinia, Sicily, Italy and Greece. Introduced into Australia in the 1800s, more acreage was devoted to Grenache than any other variety until the 1960s when it was surpassed by Syrah. Of the 6,350 acres grown here in California 60% are grown in the warm and fertile central valley counties of; Fresno and Madera. The balance is spread throughout California where Grenache has a presence in 37 of the state’s 58 counties.
 
The versatility of Grenache has played a large role in making it such a popular variety.  Grenache has the ability to produce a spectrum of wines; from the roses of the Rhone’s Tavel region to the sturdy old vine Grenache of the McClaren Vale in Australia. Here at Jeff Runquist Wines we aim to deliver Grenache with bright forward aromas and soft fruit flavors in a wine that is not burdened with either excessive tannin or surplus alcohol. Grenache is a delicate variety in that it is prone to oxidation and therefore we barrel age the wine for just six months.  Grenache is the first red wine of the vintage we bring to market. Bottled in late April and released July first, Grenache has become our summer-time red wine; perfect for picnics lighter fare and warm evenings on the patio. Margie and I enjoy it a few degrees below cellar temperature.
