Beautiful old vine Grenache - bright cherry fruit with a pleasing crunch


Tasting Notes

Beautiful old vine Grenache - bright cherry fruit with a pleasing crunch.


Robin's Note:

This is pretty unusual. It's light wine but captivaiting. It's such a contrast to what you expect from California or other New World versions or red wine. Grenache, widely used in Chateauneuf du Pape, can come in different shapes and sizes. This is one of the nicest I've tried. Beautiful old vine Grenache - bright cherry fruit with a pleasing crunch.
