The square root of “Nine” is three and three varietals make up this blend. Square Root is our Reserve “GSM” and is a bolder, more nuanced version of the blend. Each varietal went through fermentation and barrel-aging independently, enhancing their individualistic characteristics. After a few months of barrel aging the 2016 vintage we selected standout barrels of Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre from Heart Hill Vineyard. These top barrels created the final blend that we aged an additional 8 months in a 2000L wooden cask (that’s more than 15x the size of a normal barrel). An additional year of aging in bottle softened the firm tannin profile for a luxurious, rich wine.
