Craft Wine Co. Minimus Grenache Soloro Vineyards 2016

13.7% abv

Deceptively Pale red in colour with characters of strawberry, cherry and currant accented with orange blossom and licorice. Spice notes of black pepper, all spice and cinnamon carried on dusty tannins with moderate acids.

Grenache with 4% Marsanne to complete the site expression of the granitic soil in this vineyard. Fermentation included 60% of whole bunch. Aging was in neutral French barriques and puncheons to slow down oxygen exchange and minimize the impact of wood on the delicate flavors in the wine. After 6 months in barrel the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

Craft Wine Co. is based in the Willamette Valley in Oregon, the Origin and Minimus label doing exactly, well... what they say on the label. Minimus wines, simply put are produced without additives, and Origin wines are varietals from select vineyards that produce profound expressions of those varietals. Strident believers in organic farming, they make their wines naturally, patiently, and with a seemingly endless supply of enological curiosity. Reserving the right to experiment with just about any sort of technique they like, brettanomyces laced whites, intentional reduction, long skin contact, carbonic maceration and just about anything else one can imagine is the order of the day here
