A collaboration between Joel Gott and Charles Bieler, Shatter is an obsession with Grenache and terroir. To date, it has been singularly focused on old vine, dry farmed Grenache grown in schist soils in the arid and hot valley of Maury in the Roussillon region of France.
Inky black in color, the wine has flavors and aromas dominated by black current, spice and cured meats with a touch of coffee from low toast barrels. There’s an underlying minerality throughout with the distinct iron quality that schist delivers. The palate is pure and powerful, but has structure and a cohesive backbone.
Blend: 96% Grenache, 4% Syrah
