Grenache

Known as Grenache, or Garnacha (in Spain), this hot-climate grape vine can produce high-intensity, high-alcohol, flavorful medium-bodied red wines. Thinner skinned and low in tannin, Grenache is staple grape for not only producing red wine, but also Rosé. Ever hear of a “GSM” blend? Grenache, while lovely on its own, is a great partner to blend with Syrah, it’s bigger and bolder friend, as well as Mourvèdre. Mostly grown throughout Spain and in Southern France, particularly the Southern Rhône, Grenache is becoming increasingly popular in other hotter-climate regions. A go-to glass of wine for the end of a long work day!

Smockshop Band is an exploration of the Columbia River Gorge by the team at Hiyu Wine Farm. The intensity of a place’s geography corresponds to the evocative power of its wine. The Columbia Gorge is a potential paradise for wine production. The wonderful things in nature are intimately situated together. Given all of this possibility the natural thing to do is explore. To seek out new relationships between grape, place and people. The name itself is lifted from a scribbled note on a map Lewis and Clark carried while exploring the Pacific Northwest; on the site where Hiyu farm sits is written “Smockshop Band.” They have taken up the name as a vehicle for their explorations of the incredibly diverse place that is the Columbia River Gorge. This wine is medium bodied with ripe red fruit, fresh herbs, some floral notes and spice. Pale, delicate, and particularly perfumed for a Grenache.
