Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard Grenache 2014

A Tribute to Grace
Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard Grenache

We love this because...

Angela’s flagship wine is a masterclass in purity and finesse with high toned red fruit (raspberry/strawberry) marrying perfectly with notes of rosewater and sandalwood. The high proportion of whole clusters gives this cuvee a particularly fine structure and for those with the patience great age-ability.

The wine

This is Tribute to Grace’s 8th vintage from the amazing Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard located at over 1000m altitude on decomposed granite and clay loam in the Cuyama valley in an almost lunar landscape. At this elevation, there are major swings in temperature (27c) between day and night and this helps ensure a long growing season without over-ripeness. To assist with this Kaolin clay is sprayed to act as a natural and highly effective sunscreen for the grapes.

In the winery, this cuvee uses a large proportion (67%) of whole clusters to build and refine the tannic structure with the ferment lasting for 19 days and seeing two foot treadings per day to encourage extraction. After pressing the wine is aged for 17 months in a mix of 220L and 500L French oak barrels with 17% new before being bottled. The Santa Barbara Highlands is marked by its combination of elegance and structure and will age beautifully.
