The Story

The 2021 Glou-Glou Grenache began with 100% whole cluster grenache placed in a stainless steel tank. This was sealed up for two weeks of carbonic maceration, after which time the tank was opened up and the grenache was foot-treaded to initiate spontaneous alcoholic fermentation. The wine then fermented on its skins for another week, and was then pressed back to another stainless steel tank. It fermented for another week or two in tank sans skins before going completely dry.

After resting on its lees for several months, the wine was racked to a clean tank and a small amount of SO2 was added. Because we keep the wine sealed up tight in a variable capacity stainless steel tank, we are able to prevent some of the CO2 from fermentation from degassing. Thus we are able to bottle this wine with just the slightest spritz of bubbles, unfined and unfiltered.
