Benevolent Neglect GSM 2016

50.00

North Coast, California.

A blend of 70% G - Grenache, 20% M- Mourvedre, and 10% S - Syrah, perhaps it should be GMS?! Better than MSG we suppose. The fruit is sourced from three vineyards across different north coast AVA’s that Matt either farms himself, or by trusted farmers who work organically with no chemical input, and in a sustainable manner.

Miniscule production - just over a thousand bottles, and one to either drink now, or to happily pop away for some years. Uplifting floral fruit aromas - plenty of violets, strawberry and plum fruit, spice, with a hint of sweet earth and rocks just after the rain - that wonderful word, petrichor. Lots of potpourri, fennel seed and minty qualities on the mid palate matched with savoury tones and a sumptuous mouthfeel with a rocky, mineral component. Beautifully framed by mouthwatering acidity and fine tannins. A sure winner and Rhone Ranger..

Benevolent Neglect was established by two friends from the east coast, Ben Brenner and Matt Nagy. They had both formally worked at well respected wineries, with Ben working at Rutherford Wine Co, whilst Matt was producing some of California's most highly scored and finest wines at Maybach cellars. In his time at Maybach, he produced an astounding 11 100-point wines, price point starting at $400!! With these credentials, Benevolent Neglect was always certain to be a true star. As the name suggests, they work with as little intervention as possible, farming with great care, and working in the cellar with a 100% transparent policy - minimal additions and no fining or filtration on the reds. Quantities of many wines are tiny and we’re incredibly fortunate to represent the uber talented pair in the UK. There might not be any fancy reviews or quotes yet about them, but trust us, it’s only a matter of time before Benevolent Neglect and their exceptional wines are discovered.
