An Approach to Relaxation "Sucette" Grenache Barossa Valley 2017
This wine is an endeavor from Master Somm Richard Betz and Carla Rza Betts. They found a 150+ year-old Grenache vineyard (The Rza Block) set on sandy soil in one of coolest microclimates in the Barossa Valley in South Australia.
The vines are dry farmed, head-trained and grow on their own roots. From this tiny vineyard they make their Sucette Grenache. Winemaking is low-touch, a little whole bunch, fermented in open-top fermenters. Grapes are basket pressed to old French oak and left to do their own thing, to preserve all the nuances this lovely old site imparts on the fruit.
