Tasting Notes

This is the signature wine of Momento, and a Grenache noir with a unique Pinot Noir character. 1/3 whole bunch fermentation, the grapes are picked earlier to retain freshness, this is giving a flowery expression, a certain delicateness and distinction. The palate is graceful and fresh, with a grippy tannic structure, this is a harmonious wine, restrain and mineral. Drink from 2020.
