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.
A wonderfully food-friendly style, made without any oak. Young and all about the fruit – bright red berries, cherry and violet combine with notes of violet and dried spice to create a balanced and utterly moreish wine. While drinking beautifully now, this Grenache will continue to reward with carefully cellaring.

A balance of 75% Grenache and 25% Shiraz, this is one juicy wine. It begins with intense fruit aromas that move in a rich palate of red berries, spice and chocolate supported by hints of French oak. A beautiful food-friendly wine with good complexity and depth.

Soft and elegant with balanced weight right through the palate. Tannins and acidity work in harmony, supporting notes of cherry, orange blossom and raspberry with hints of spice and earth.
Item Code: ITM7009
Intensely flavoursome, this wine combines the intense savoury raspberry characters from the Grenache with rich plum and chocolatey spice from Shiraz and the structure and length of the Mataro. A bargain GSM for the price.
