'GRENACHE, CARBONIC MACERATION, FUNKY AND FERAL

I LOVE GRENACHE, I LOVE ITS VERSATILITY AND IT’S DRINKABILITY. I WAS MOSTLY DRAWN TO GETTING INVOLVED WITH THE PROCESS AND LEANING TO MORE TEXTURAL, STRUCTURED AND SAVOURY VERSIONS. THEN ONE DAY I GOT TO THINKING, WHAT ABOUT JUST DOING NOTHING AND LET THE GRAPES DO THE WORK.

SO I CHUCKED A FEW BINS OF HAND PICKED GRENACHE GRAPES INTO A TANK WITH A BIT OF CO2, SEALED THE LID AND CAME BACK SEVERAL WEEKS LATER. WHEN I LIFTED THE LID I WAS HIT WITH A WHOLE LOT OF GASSY FUNK, BUT IN A REALLY GOOD WAY. IT WAS WILD AND FERAL BUT MOSTLY INTOXICATING.

SO FOR A FEW WEEKS AFTER I JUST JUMPED ON TOP OF THESE BUNCHES, BREAKING THEM UP, IN REAL TERMS TO BUILD STRUCTURE, BUT MOSTLY TO GET LOST IN THE FERINE LIKE SMELLS THAT FILLED THE AIR.'
