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 fragrant bouquet that reflect the varietal and region. The palate is loaded with layers of red fruits, juicy acidity and is framed by fine tannins. A wonderful McLaren Vale Grenache.
