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.
This medium-bodied blend displays aromas of violet, ripe red cherry and raspberry with subtle hints of savoury oak. The palate is elegant with red fruit characters balanced by fine tannins and soft oak nuances.
Item Code: ITM6466
Aromas of red fruits, dried herbs, spice and earth with subtle smoky notes. Medium-bodied with luxurious fruit-sweetness and smooth texture to create a rich and fleshy palate with great depth and harmony. A charming wine that is drinking wonderfully now but will also reward careful cellaring.

"A super blend of grenache 50%, mourvedre 28%, with splashes of shiraz, cinsaut, roussanne and counoise for added interest and flavour. It's so lively, aromas emanating from a baker's kitchen with cardamom, ginger and star anise, floral too. The palate is lighter framed, juicy with supple tannins but it's not simple, there's just a joyous ease to this with tangy acidity to close. Delicious." Halliday Wine Companion

"Single vineyard grenache from the Barossa. Whole bunches, basket pressing, 500l oak, bottled unfined. Crackerjack grenache. Brimful of both power and personality but without being overdone. Florals, blueberries, redcurrant and bitumen. A flash of sweet raspberry but blink-and-you-miss-it. Tannin flings wide through the wine. A beauty." Campbell Mattinson
Item Code: ITM7093
A robust Barossa blend brooding with rich red and black fruits, peppery spice and thick, chewy tannins. Not for the faint hearted.
Item Code: ITM5136
A pretty nose with notes of raspberry and spice. The palate is full of juicy red fruits with savoury undertones and masculine tannins. Poise and power all rolled into one wine.
Item Code: ITM6042
"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

“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 …) and with a lift that’s almost indecent. Perfectly in balance, all these characteristics follow through to the palate that finishes like silk. Seamless, long, soft and lush. Again, it’s Grenache in all its glory and like no other” Ben Jeanneret, Winemaker
