A pretty, delicate and pure feeling red wine.

About This Wine
Light bright, and full of carbonic crunch, this Grenache Shiraz blend from exciting newcomer Defialy, is certainly a wine that makes you take notice.
There is some real intent with this wine, light and fresh are the key words, and it sure delivers in spades. Juicy cherries, and a whole jumble of red berries, overflowing with smoothness, a touch of minerality and tannins that are silky as.
It’s nice to see a Grenache/Shiraz blend that is defiantly light-bodied, unadorned, and very amenable to a good chill.
Micah Hewitt is the man behind Defialy, and someone who has taken a unique path to winemaking.
A high-end butcher for over 20 years, the exposure to top end produce, and a love of the land, and good wine eventually led him to this point.
Inspired by the love his parents had for each other, and their children, Defialy (Don’t Ever Forget, I’ll Always Love You) is named for them.
Micah makes wines that he loves to drink and share with friends, pure vibrant wines that speak of nature, with nothing but stomped grapes inside.
