User Reviews for Austin Hope Grenache

Winemaker's Notes:

Grapes were fermented in five-ton, open top tanks. After fermentation, the wine was aged 11 months on its lees, in 70% new French oak barrels from a variety of coopers including Seguin Moreau, Francois Freres and Remond. The remainder was aged in 1-2 year old French oak barrels. The Grenache was racked only once, just prior to bottling. It is 100% unfiltered.

Tasting Notes:

2005 is the first release of Grenache from the Austin Hope Winery. The aromas of wild strawberry are bright, but soft, with hints of cedar, rose petal, camphor, and earthy, truffle-like notes. Ripe berry leads to soft cocoa on the mid-palate with a chalky, seamless texture of well-integrated tannins that offer a long and elegant finish.
