Grenache

Our Old Mate.

Grenache, unlike like the rain, was originally found mainly on the plains of Spain. In Australia, Grenache was considered a workhorse of the original varieties planted in Australia, mainly used in fortified wine production.  The Barossa is home to one of the world’s oldest Grenache vineyards, planted in 1850. These days, Grenache in Australia is finally recognised as a delicious table wine as a single varietal, but also forms the backbone of the classic GSM variety, or in our case, Grenache, Mourverdre and Shiraz. Barossa Grenache also makes a deliciously crisp, dry rosé which is the perfect match for hot Aussie summers by the water.

MT says; “He is my old mate and he is there to help us share a laugh, a kiss and a smile. He wants to enrich our lives. When that new baby is born, those nuptials toasted or those new virgin warships eventually hit the water, in time, I would say it will be un-Australian not to have a fresh glass of brilliantly slurpable Grenache in your hand.”

IN THE GLASS

Aussie Grenache

In the glass, Australian Grenache can be light, medium or full bodied, depending on the clone, vineyard and winemaking preference. It has flavours of cherry, ripe raspberry with hints of white pepper, spice and an earthiness.  Pair a glass of slurpable Grenache with spicy curries, paella, pork belly pizza or a delicious cheese board!
