Ovene Winery Grenache the Puzzle 2004

External Review by CoolVines:

Jeff and Genni White had been involved with wine for 20 years before they founded Ovene in 2004. They source grapes from a select few vineyards for their annual production of 5000 cases of various wines. The grapes are picked early in the morning, cold soaked and destemmed into open top fermenters for 2 weeks. After several punch downs the wine goes into American and French oak barrels and the must is pressed into the barrels. The wine ages for 24 months and is bottled unfiltered. The result is the young jammy fruit characteristic develops into a complex wine. "The Puzzle" is a blend of 85% Grenache from two vineyards and 15% Mourvedre to add a firm finish to the outstanding fruit.

Ovene Winery produces World Class Central Coast Pinot Noir, Syrah, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Our first release is a Rose of Syrah. This wine is reminiscent of the great Roses of Provence and Bandol on the French Riviera. Our Rose of Syrah is a complex blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, and a touch of Muscat. It is best served chilled and enjoyed on a hot summer afternoon, at festive barbeques, or at the beach with friends. Winemaking is a convergence of Nature, Art, and Science. Mother Nature gives us the weather for the vintage which defines the character of the fruit. The best vineyards are sourced, the lots carefully sorted, and the grapes become wine with loving care. State of the Art equipment is used to process the wine which is aged in French and American oak barrels. The Winemakers craft is putting the pieces of the puzzle together. Ovene Winery is the culmination of a lifetime of our family’s passion for food and wine. Ovene is dedicated to my Grandmother Merthel Ovene McConnel. Granny was an inspiration to several generations who taught us the love of God, family values, traditions and a passion for food and wine. She was known as Groovy Granny as we were growing up and told us we could accomplish anything we set our minds to. She blessed this venture despite her failing health at 94 and passed away the day after we received our first grapes and bonded winery license. We are blessed to dedicate Ovene Winery to all the inspirational women in our lives. Groovy Granny always said to save the best for last. This puzzle is now complete. The only piece missing is you. Enjoy, Mr. Ovene Read less
