Waterford Estate Grenache Noir

Waterford Estate Grenache Noir

R 320.00
Very inviting aromatics of orange rind, earthy red cherry and exotic fruits, with hints of clove spice. The palate is layered with red cherries, tomato reduction, earthy notes and savoury flavours along with velvety dry tannins and a lovely freshness to carry the fruit.

The vineyard was planted in 2004 in soils reminiscent of Spain’s arid, rocky soils that consist mostly of sandstone and granite parent material. Challenging growing conditions tend to help Grenache vineyards thrive. This vineyard reached maturity in 2013/2014, and now produces smaller bunches and berries that give more concentrated and mature flavours. The wine is aged in roughly 30% porcelain jars, as well as large 500l old French oak barrels for a period of 14 months.
