2018 Andremily Grenache Release

#1 Post by Tyler F. »

Came across the 2018 Andremily Grenache release post on the Andremily IG page.



I've been fortunate to have an allocation for the Syrah and Mourvedre the last few years, so hoping this one hits the inbox, too. Dropping tomorrow, per the IG comments/details. Fingers crossed!

No brainer purchase. Excited to see how Jim and team worked with this. Curious if the offer will also include EABA and the rosé, as those were the May offer last year.

Easy all-in decision here. Quite liked the EABA, so I truly hope that is offered again each year.

I am yet to try one, but i'm thinking 9 bottles of Andremily may be =/better and slightly cheaper than 4 Next Of Kyn.

adding notes from offer email here for future reference.....

The 2018 Andremily EABA is a hauntingly delicious blend of 59% Syrah, from Bien Nacido & Harrison-Clarke Vineyards, paired with 23% Mourvedre, and 15% Grenache, from Alta Mesa & Larner Vineyards, and finished off with a splash of Viognier for good measure. The 2018 Andremily EABA was 60% whole cluster fermented and brought up in 50% new French oak.

The 2018 Andremily Grenache is an absolutely stunningly delicious concoction of 80% Grenache, 14% Mourvedre, and 6% Syrah. The fruit sources for this amazing wine are Alta Mesa, Larner, and Kimsey Vineyards. The components for this blend were raised in a combination of 50% new French Barrique and Demi-Muids for 21 months before bottling without fining or filtration.

this like Jim's other wines is no shrinking violet but had nice balance and lift for a barrel sample. Mix of red and darker fuit and long finish. from recollection. I also sent myself a calendar reminder to buy all i could

Is there a waitlist? I signed up around Jan/Feb of this year and just got an offer email today.

Funny enough, I logged into the site early this morning because I couldn't remember if I had signed up yet and then got the offer email a little later.

Edit: Checked and signed up in June 2020. Sorry for the confusion this caused.

Chris / John -

The wine cost ratio is correct. I am a fan of NOK and Andremily. They are not clones of each other but both exceptional. certainly Andremily is the better QPR

Signed up for list in 2014, but wasn't offered wine until 2016 with the 2014 #3 release. This allocation, was offered EABA, but no Grenache. Find it odd that new list sign ups are getting offered the Grenache, but none for me. Emailed to find out whats up.

Well, the price is up $12/bottle but these are always such great wines that it’s worth it for sure. Shipping is reasonable. Order in!

Odd. I signed up in December 2020 and received neither an email nor an allocation. Any chance you meant Jan/Feb of 2020?

Hey, sorry for any confusion I caused. I met up with a fellow Berserker earlier this year and he told me to sign up if I haven’t since I was a fan of this style. Turns out I signed up June 2020. To many waitlists to keep track of! Haha

Sorry again folks!

Jeb has reviewed both and gave them scores (range) bordering on perfection. Scores aren’t as valuable as the review content (IMO), but the reviews from Jeb very much aligned with my expectations and with the scores he gave them.

The 2017 is absolutely wonderful. I grabbed both 3-packs in my allocation without hesitation. Definitely a no-brainer, IMO.

Opened in the morning and did slow-ox until lunch. Then decanted for probably 6 hours. Drank over the course of 4 hours. Needed every bit of air to shine. Saved a glass for day 2 and there was still an improvement over day 1. Nothing made it to day 3. Not sure I'd touch them now, but YMMV.

Jeff,

I tried a 2017 EABA with about 3-4 hours decanted before rebottle for transport to a friend's place where we drank about 2 hours later. DE-LISH! Saxum needs more time (both bottle and air).

They seem so new, but they've been making wine for at least 7 years. I'm surprised the waitlist isn't a lot longer. The price point is right in the range of Saxum JBV,
Alban Reva and Cayuse BF. They easily hold their own in comparison. And their Mourvedre is outstanding.

Order in for one 3-pack of EABA and wish listed for one 3-pack of grenache. My fingers are crossed for the grenache for sure, because it is my favorite grape of the rhone varietals, which knowing Jim, it is close to perfection! [dance-clap.gif]

Good reminder to respond to my email. I just started decanting a 2017 EABA.

Just noticed this little nugget in the email.....

We are delighted to report that in December Andremily officially became an Estate Winery. We are so excited, and thankful for the opportunity to purchase the Slide Hill Vineyard in Edna Valley (San Luis Obispo, CA), and are looking forward to this new chapter at Andremily. Slide Hill is planted predominately to Syrah and Grenache, just as we would hope, while also offering a few lesser-known varietals to explore.

I was able to find this from the J.Dirt website....... https://jdirtwines.com/slide-hill/history.html

Planted in 2005, the vineyard totals 39 acres with 22 acres of Syrah (Alban 1, Alban PB, Estrella, UCD 1, 174, 383, and 877 clones), 7 acres of Grenache (Alban and Tablas clones), 3 acres each of Pinot Noir (115, 667 and 777 clones) and Albarino, 2 acres of Tempranillo and a little over an acre each of Marsanne and Viognier. The Rhône varieties have done very well in our area.

The site consists of 3 rolling hills and a meadow with a variety of slopes, orientations and soils. The vine spacing is 9 feet between rows and 5 feet between vines while the row directions vary according to the slope. Wind has an impact on the western slopes of the vineyard.

The 2017 is absolutely wonderful. I grabbed both 3-packs in my allocation without hesitation. Definitely a no-brainer, IMO.
How long did you decant the 17 before trying one?
Jeff,

I tried a 2017 EABA with about 3-4 hours decanted before rebottle for transport to a friend's place where we drank about 2 hours later. DE-LISH! Saxum needs more time (both bottle and air).
Had a 2017 within the past month as well and basically did the same. Opened and decanted starting at noon. Ready to go by dinner at 6P. Drank til about 8P. Perfect!

Only got to wishlist the Grenache - darn.

All in on the EABA - 2017 was so good, so ready to drink, no hot in any way, so smooth and polished that once we opened the first bottle the others did not last very long.

Bought one each of the EABA and Grenache. First chance to purchase. They don't ship to NJ, so I need to double the shipping costs to get these. Not ideal, but hopeful that changes over time with them.

I took all that was offered and wished for more. Shipping and tax adds $20 per bottle. Ouch!
