Grenache

We’ve seen a massive ground-swell in popularity for Grenache in the last 20 years or so. No longer is it sidelined for fortification or blended away, rather it is being championed, particularly in the McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley, as a legitimate high-quality table wine. We find so much scope in Grenache with some offerings being incredibly light and approachable, almost Pinot Noir-like and others being treated more like a ballsy Shiraz. Either way, we’re on board.

  • Colab and Bloom McLaren Vale Grenache 2018

    We looked at over 50 wines in a marathon sitting of the tasting panel and this was wine of the day. This medium bodied with lifted and perfumed red fruits and perfectly balanced. The fruit is intense but in no way dense, primarily in red fruit territory bleeding into blue. A stunning grenache....

  • Curtis Family Vineyards Limited Series McLaren Vale Grenache 2016

    Superbly fine boned and taut yet generously fruited McLaren Vale Grenache. Definitely give it a rip in a decanter before you get into it. There’s a lot of blue fruit here, along with spice and a hint of confection and exceptional length. This is properly classy kit which we reckon will improve with cellaring for 10-15 years, such is its structure and power of fruit....

  • d’Arenberg The Custodian Grenache 2016

    Initially cranky and uncommunicative, like Monday morning before a couple of short blacks. With air this really opens beautifully, showing smoked meats and red confection, cherries, plentiful acid and a stack of fine tannins. Properly mouthwatering and worth having with a hearty Beef cheek dish or a platter of cured meats and...

Buy a couple of doz and drink one a year...

  • Purple Hands Wines Old Vine Grenache 2017

    What a stunner – mouthwateringly medium bodied Barossa Grenache made from old bush vines, hand plunged and basket pressed into big, old oak where it spends almost a year sitting on its solids, which adds texture and class. Has stunning intensity of bright fruit aromas and flavours with blue and red berries, spice and plum. Magnificent. Good enough to be $50 a...

  • St. John's Road 'The Resilient' Grenache 2017

    Stunning! Trophy winner as best Grenache and best red at the Barossa wine show and a gold winner at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show. No idea how a wine this good off vines up to a century old can sell for this price. Raspberry, rhubarb, cherries, flowers. The acid is perfect, sour enough to prevent this from becoming cordial like, present enough to provide a respectfully adult counterpoint to the...

  • Willunga 100 Grenache 2016

    Raspberries, spice and a waft of cherry and pepper here. The wine is medium-bodied and absolutely lip-smacking with plenty of red fruits and savoury bits too. Acid lifts the fruit and pulls it forward, counterbalancing the fruit sweetness...
