Waterford Estate Grenache Noir 2015

Waterford Estate Grenache Noir 2015

Plush red cherry and exotic fruits, with touches of earthy clove spice. The palate has earthy, savory flavours along with delicate dry tannins and a soft freshness to carry the fruit.

Pairs very well with local venison complimented with elements of bacon, cloves and a stewed fruit chutney.

in the vineyard : Good long winter, but late rains and cold delaying pruning. Great windless conditions experienced for flowering resulted in a high yield vintage. February temperatures were extremely hot pushing ripening and this made for a quick harvest. Highest recorded tonnages for Waterford Estate. Whites challenging but the red wines have impressed.
