    Winemaker Notes

    In 2016 A Tribute to Grace took over the entire SBHV block of Grenache known as 'K1', giving them a wondrous 10.2tons to devote to our Rose. They started working with this block in 2013, which is planted to a Grenache clone known for its delicate ruby hue. Farmed to around 5 tons per acre, the density both slows down the ripening curve, and maintains a delightfully low pH - perfect for intentional Rose. The vintage’s dry conditions assert themselves with layers of minerality, and an aromatic energy that envelops both blossom notes (manuka) and stone fruit (nectarine).

    Whole Grenache clusters were gently crushed and left on their skins for 24 hours before being pressed to tank. A long, slow fermentation ensued over 30 days, after which she rested with her gross lees for 3 more moons. Secondary fermentation was halted to keep the wine’s delicate aromatics and crisp acidity.

    This wine was bottled under a Leo moon: February 10th, 2017

    A Tribute To Grace Wine Company is dedicated to crafting authentic expressions of Grenache. All wines are single-vineyard sourced to maintain authenticity, and remain 100% Grenache.

    Angela Osborne is a New Zealand born winemaker who moved to California in 2006 with the dream of making Grenache. In the land from which she stems, the climate is too cool to ripen this sun-loving beauty. And so began her search: northern Spain, southern France, southern Australia, California...

    Abundant sunshine and entrepreneurial spirit led Angela to the latter, and in 2007 she sourced her first Grenache fruit from the Santa Barbara Highlands Vineyard. Nestled high above the Pacific Ocean and 33 miles inland, this high-desert vineyard provided the perfect balance of heat and light that was sought. Angela named her label after two of her favorite things: her Grandmother Grace and her most beloved attribute. Angela's winemaking intention is to capture this spirit, and stay as close to nature as humanly possible. The trio is completed by the grape itself, which to me encapsulates grace.
