On a hot summer day in early 2021, we sat down to a lazy Sunday lunch and dreamed about a bright, fresh summer red that we could enjoy lightly chilled to while away the afternoon. And so, during the following vintage, the Kurtz Family Vineyards Unwooded Grenache was born.
We picked a portion of the Boundary Row Grenache from our Light Pass vineyard early, when the fruit was just-ripe and bursting with vibrant red fruit characters. In the winery, the fruit was gently fermented on skins just long enough to extract the delicious Grenache flavours yet keeping the tannins soft and plush.
After pressing, the wine was held in stainless steel to retain the bright fruit flavours, and bottled and released while young to capture the freshness and vibrancy of early harvest Grenache.
Kurtz Family Vineyards Unwooded Grenache is ideal to enjoy slightly chilled over a lazy summer lunch. It pairs perfectly with light tasty meats like tuna steaks, pork, turkey and cured meats, hearty salads, and vegetables including grilled mushrooms or roast beetroot.
