Ever since our first release of the Vox Populi Mourvedre, we’ve been asked on a regular basis: “When are you guys making a Grenache?” Well, it took us a while but we finally found a great source. Monette’s Vineyard sits in "the Rocks" area of Walla Walla. The quality of the Grenache from this site compelled us. We are proud to introduce our first Grenache – the 2011 primus inter pares Grenache Monette’s Vineyard. Primus inter pares means "first among equals" and it’s a fitting description of the fruit from Monette’s Vineyard. Technical details: The wine had a pre-fermentation maceration of 146 hours and a post-fermentation maceration of 55 hours. The wine was punched down by hand 3 times each day during macerations and fermentation. All individual wine components, including free run and press fractions, were kept separate until final blending. The oak profile is 20% new French oak (predominantly from Troncais and Alliers) and 80% neutral French oak. The wine achieved its sparkly brilliance from 3 judicious rackings, no fining agents were employed. The wine was very lightly filtered to capture any remaining lees. The alcohol is 14.9%, pH is 3.65, and the titratable acidity is 5.8 g/L. Harvest date: October 23, 2011.
