2016 Hard Point
Grenache is an easy varietal to grow however it requires a lot of care and attention. The large clusters are hand manicured at least twice per growing season in order to make sure the fruit is concentrated in flavor and texture. The canopy is carefully managed to encourage color and tannin accumulation. In order to show the beauty, balance, and purity of fruit that our site has to offer, the fruit is largely destemmed and fermented in stainless, then aged in neutral barrels to limit oak influence. The resulting wine is bright and balanced with strong structure.
Hard Point started as a bronze sculpture we found on a surprise birthday trip for Rebecca to Bozeman, Montana. Wandering through a small gallery, our friends pointed out it looked nearly identical to our German Shorthair Pointer dog, Yadi. It was a pretty easy decision for us once we laid eyes on that beautiful piece that we wanted to incorporate it into one of our wine labels. Rebecca then carved and created a print out of the statue to come up with this label.$85 · Members Only
