You don’t see a hell of a lot of grenache or grenache blends in Central Victorian regions such as the Pyrenees with the locals definitely having a preference for sturdy shiraz and cabernet sauvignon. It’s a shame because this is a great example of a modern, food friendly style, which is becoming increasingly popular. Sure it won’t last a decade in the cellar but at the end of the day most wines are enjoyed young.
A pretty ruby colour is followed by bright and generous fruits – black cherry, mulberry plus some charcuterie and spice. It’s then mid-weight with warming alcohol and supple tannins providing quite a long and silky finish. Lots to like especially when matched up with Spanish tapas.
