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 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.

With inviting raspberry and cherry aromas at the fore, this wine exudes charm from the first whiff.

"Roses, sage, ripe raspberry, peanuts, liquorice and chocolate. Medium bodied, but incredible density and concentration of flavour – essence of Grenache delivered with class – suede stroke of tannin, freshness of acidity nestled deep inside a core of savoury and plump fruit, and a finish that soars and carries long. Incredible. I’m thinking about the great Grenache wines of the world while I taste this, and surely this is one of them." Gary Walsh
