Zitta Wines Old Bush Vine Grenache 2013
2013 Old Bush vine Vine Grenache is dark red burgundy in colour. The inviting nose is lifted with aromatics of rose petals, musk, raspberries, malt and sweet spice. The rich palate is mouth filling with bright varietal Grenache fruit flavours of cherry, licorice and a touch of herbs and earthiness. There are natural grainy tannins adding solid structure and longevity. A lengthy finish completes this complex wine. This distinguished Grenache drinks well now but is ideally suited for cellaring.
2013 Old Bush Vine Grenache was hand picking on April 1st, grapes were gently de-stemmed into small open-top fermenters. The must was warmly fermented using native yeast and gentle hand pump overs were carried out twice a day for flavour and colour extraction. After fermentation on skins for fourteen days the must was traditionally pressed and then filled to barrel. The wine was matured in seasoned French oak hogsheads for 24 months prior to bottling.
