Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of candied cherry, leather and vanilla. The wine opens with red fruit flavors, leading to bright acidity and soft tannins on the mid-palate. The finish is long and concentrated with well-integrated oak. Using new oak barrels helps to soften and round out the wine’s natural intensity, accentuating the fruit characteristics.
Winemaker Notes
Shatter comes from the small town of Maury in the Roussillon region of France. The hillside Grenache vines were planted over 60 years ago in black schist, a slate-like, rocky soil common to the area. Though nutrient-poor, it retains heat well, allowing the slow-ripening Grenache to reach full maturity through cool nights. Tough soil, strong winds and hot days push the vines and cause shatter, or coulure, in the grape clusters, naturally thinning fruit from the vines and producing more intensely concentrated flavors. After harvest, the fruit was cold-soaked for 30 days to help further concentrate the wine, then fermented and aged in Maury.
