There is something innate and unexplainable about why Grenache grows well at Heart Hill Vineyard. Maybe it’s the steep shale soil or the cooling ocean breezes but something lends this wine density and structure without veiling the delicate red fruit that is a hallmark of the varietal. Grenache produces a notoriously heavy crop and in 2016 we farmed the block at a single cluster per shoot. We were so pleased with the results that we created our first ever Reserve Grenache bottling.
