Pretty Good

The fruit for this Lake Breeze Old Vine Grenache was handpicked from the winery's 1932 planting of Grenache vines. Nurtured in open fermenters and aged for 10 months in two-year-old French barriques, this classic Grenache features a strong purple red colour. It opens with candied raspberry, redskin lolly and earthy characters flowing off the scintillating nose. The palate is juicy and smooth, with light tannins that swirl through supple red fruit flavours, leading to a slightly bitter yet refreshing finish. With adequate cellaring, this wine will age gracefully over the next 5 years. Pair this delicious wine with braised meats, stews, or washed rind cheese.
