Naude Family Wines Grenache 2017
This wine is from young bush vines in Wellington.
Winemaking and Maturation
Produced in a natural, hands-off style and fermented in old French oak using 80% whole bunches.
The bouquet reveals a complex perfume of violets, marzipan and red cherry with a sleek medium bodied palate, brimming with bramble berry, fraises des bois and Chinese Spice on the finish. A classic expression of this variety.
The wine is known for its rich fruit flavours such as red and dark berries, spices like pepper and sometimes a hint of leather or tobacco. The wine has been aged for a few years and has had time to develop more complex flavours and aromas, and a good balance of acidity and tannins.
