The Austin Hope Grenache was grown on the Hope Family Vineyard in the Templeton Gap district of Paso Robles. Six Grenache clones were used in the 2016 blend: Garnacha Clone 814 (Spain), Alban (Rayas CDP France),  Tinta Clone 01 (Spain), Clone 362 (France), Tablas Creek Vineyard Selection (Beaucastel CDP France via Paso Robles), and Clone 513 (France). The grapes were hand picked and fermented separately by vineyard block. The wines were held on their skins for an additional 30 to 60  days before barreled down into 54% new and 46% used French Oak barrels where they aged for 31 months.
