Lino Ramble Gomas Grenache 2015

We’re really getting somewhere with Grenache now. I liked this so much, that I transferred it into my Nebbiolo glass. Anyway, didn’t know much about the wine, so contacted winemaker Andy Coppard for more details. I also sent him a picture of Mark Hamill portraying evil super hero “The Cock Knocker”, but that’s another story. Anyway, our McLaren Vale Superhero told me –

The vineyard is located on Seaview Rd in MV. Not far from Kay’s. Rich Loam over limestone. Currently under going organic certification.
Fruit was hand harvested. 25% whole bunch, open fermented using wild yeast. 21 day skin contact. Basket Pressed and matured in old French oak barriques for 8 months. No added acid, tannin, enzymes, fining agents etc. Only addition made was SO2 post MLF.
