Domaine Artefact

2017 Grenache Noir

Estate

The Domaine Artefact 2018 Grenache Noir has aromas of coco nibs, cherry cola, white pepper, raspberries, orange zest, vanilla bean, pomegranate, mulberry, fresh black and red berries plus a hint of smoke.
This wine is medium bodied with soft tannins, balanced acidity with a lingering cherry preserve and dark berry finish. De-lish!
40% of the berries were whole clusters and fermented in macro bins. Racked into a new French oak the rest of the wine (80%) was racked to neutral barrels for 16 months.
This Grenache Noir pairs well with grilled meats, chicken and pork, plank grilled salmon, pasta Bolognese, prosciutto and mushroom pizza, soup pistou, and ratatouille.
