93 Points - Erin Larkin (RobertParker.com) "This 2020 Ferine Grenache is bloody and savory; it had 12 months' elevage and whole-cluster carbonic ferment. In the mouth, this is ripe and supple and fine-boned and thrilling—the tannins create shape and really push the fruit out into all corners of the mouth. The wine is spacious and electric and supple—it’s really good. Deeply pleasurable to drink. The tannins carry it over the palate and through into the finish. It's like an expand-a-ball in the mouth. Fantastic."
94 Points - Stuart McCloskey “Fun, super-enjoyable and pitched perfectly, would be my summary (and I believe best served on the ‘cooler’ side). The bouquet is filled with soused cherry, raspberry, cola and sweet fragrant spice. The palate is ripe and juicy, the acidity feels brisk which I love against the backdrop of sour cherry. There’s a sweet and sour, edging towards a Campari feel (and in a good way) to all the fruit along with a ‘crunch’ which intrigues. Far from heavy; bright and brisk being the best descriptive words. Very enjoyable. Drink now to 2025. Served using Zalto Bordeaux glassware.”
Winemakers Note: I love Grenache, I love its versatility and its drinkability. I was mostly drawn to getting involved with the process and leaning to more textural, structured and savoury versions. Then one day I got to thinking, what about just doing nothing and let the grapes do the work. So, I chucked a few bins of hand-picked grenache grapes into a tank with a bit of co2, sealed the lid and came back several weeks later. When I lifted the lid, I was hit with a whole lot of gassy funk, but in a really good way. It was wild and feral but mostly intoxicating. So, for a few weeks after I just jumped on top of these bunches, breaking them up, in real terms to build structure, but mostly to get lost in the ferine like smells that filled the air.
