2020 Jauma Ralph's Grenache
Notes from winemaker James Erskine...
In attempt to show a pure expression of place these four, single vineyard, Grenache wines are all managed by Fiona Wood, harvested at similar sugar levels, fully destemmed, fermented to dry and rested in stainless tanks. They are bottled 10months later within the same week and of course made with grapes only. Ralph's comes from the top of the Alfred/Ralphs block. Here there's more water in the soil profile, the vines are bigger and ripen more slowly but we pick on the same day as Alfred. A truly unique wine.
