Sans Liege Groundwork Rosé of Grenache
Sans Liege’s Groundwork project is all about the fundamentals. Putting to use the empirical knowledge he has gained from making wine for his first label, Sans Liege Wines, Curt Schalchlin seeks to bring his experience to a new set of wines that embrace the soul and simple living of the Rhône Valley and Southern France.
Groundwork is built upon Curt’s comfort and confidence as a winemaker, instructing him to trust in the fruit, the vineyards, and his own rich experience as guides. (He’s also co-owner and co-winemaker at The Fableist, so you know these wines are solid, Jackson).
His 2020 Grenache Rosé was cleanly fermented with secondary malo-lactic arrested. 67% Direct to press Grenache from Kopak Vineyard, 33% saignée from (Old Potrero, Alta Mesa, Alta Colina, Derby, Spanish Springs and Slide Hill). 12% Alcohol. 100% Grenache
