Elizabeth Spencer Grenache, Mendocino
Deceptively light in color, this grenache delivers exotic and alluring aromas of fresh raspberries and orange peel. The wine is lively and light on the palate, with an acidity that refreshes and supports the fruit flavors from the front to the back. Black cherry, strawberry, and a subtle zestiness linger on the finish.
Serve slightly chilled on a warm summer evening or pair with your favorite fall dishes.
The grapes for this grenache are sourced from from two vineyards, separated from each other by only a few miles. Both sites enjoyed a measured, uneventful growing season and were harvested within days of each other. The winery works closely with the growers to regulate crop size, allowing each vine to carry only as many clusters as could perfectly ripen.
