2016 Gran Rouge - G.S.M. Rhone Blend - 6PK
The Lonesome Spring Ranch Vineyard is situated at the base of the well-drained Rattlesnake Mountain Bench in Yakima Valley and its planted to micro parcels. Each parcel is meticulously farmed to the highest sustainable standards through ‘Vinewise’ Certification.
Winemaker, Bryan Weil, ensures each cluster is hand-sorted, the berries are removed from the stems, and whole-berry fermentation kicks off with wild yeast strains. A labor of love, manual punch-downs are performed up to four times per day in small fermentation vessels for 10-12 days.
