About Florez Lovebirds Grenache Noir/Blanc
Florez Lovebirds Grenache Noir/Blanc shows aromatics of kiwi, guava, and tangerine leading right into a crunchy and tannic palate of fresh and juicy sour candy. A thirst-quenching spring holiday wine that will keep you cool throughout the summer. Easily enjoyed chilled with a citrus salad, roast chicken, and rosemary potatoes in the sun.
Winemaker James Jelks says “This wine is part of my continued exploration of Grenache. I believe the variety is aptly suited for California, and I love the terroir expressiveness ranging from vin de garde to vin de soif wines. This wine is a co-ferment of Grenache Noir and Grenache Blanc to make a light red wine with some texture. Serve chilled and enjoy.”

About the Winemaking
With inspiration stemming from some of the natural legends of Tavel and Roussillon, a short maceration creates a textured wine that falls somewhere between rosé, ramato, glouglou. The Grenache Blanc & Grenache Noir were destemmed evenly together and allowed to begin native fermentation. Gentle pump-overs were used to keep the ferment healthy and after 6 days the grapes were pressed and the fermenting juice was sent to a stainless tank to finish fermentation. After 5 months sur lie, the wine was racked in preparation for bottling. Unfined, unfiltered, with no other ameliorations except 10ppm SO2 at bottling.
