One of the most widely planted grapes in the world, Grenache thrives in the hot dry climates of France’s Rhône Valley and in Spain, where it is known as Garnacha. Unsurprisingly, it has also proved a success in Australia’s warmer wine regions. It is often blended with Shiraz and Mourvèdre to make robust ‘Rhône blend’ wines.
"Unapologetically ripe and rich. Grenache does this style like no other variety and this wine is an impossible complex medley of spice and warm herbs (think rosemary, thyme, oregano …) – with a lift that’s almost indecent. Perfectly in balance, all these characteristics follow through to the palate which finishes like silk. Seamless, long, soft and lush. Again, it’s Grenache in all its glory and like no other.” Ben Jeanneret, Winemaker
