This wine's story

From an organically tended vineyard in the northeastern corner of Spain, this is a serious beast with a playful edge. Predominantly Grenache (referred to as Garnacha in Spain!), blended with a small amount of Carignan, the wine shows plenty of dark plum fruits and a juicy undercurrent of bay leaves and thyme. Plenty of fresh acidity without the impediment of oak – delicious.

Team Notes

I originally reserved Grenache for when I wanted a good flavour kick, but didn't feel like Cab Saz or Shiraz. But this wine is so good, it's now on my 'go-to list'.
