2018 Antipodés Grenache
Antipodés is the realisation of a long-held dream for Jean-Jacques Morel, the natural micro producer from Saint- Aubin in Burgundy.
1⁄2 a tonne of old vine Grenache from Wayne Ahrens’ biodynamically farmed sandy soils in Vine Vale. Whole bunch fermented in an open puncheon. Aged in an old French hogshead for 12 months. Soft crimson cherry red colour. Lifted pretty pink and red flowers with light spice and hint of volatility looseness. Very pretty style in the carbonic mode, just what we love from Grenache.
