Focusing on Grenache

Australian Grenache

Yes, we're moving from Spain where you expect to find lots of Grenache to Australia, where you might be thinking of not going at all, but what a mistake that would be!

Australia produces some really delicious Grenache based wines and the beauty of the ones I try to day is that they  generally remain very true to Grenache, meaning that they are lighter in body and full of aromatic red fruits.

    I've not been overwhelmed by Valdemar's wines, but that Garnacha sounds worth a try.

    Slightly off topic. Got a wonderful 2004 a while back from one of on line retailers. Ondarre Reserva Rioja. ended up buying two cases, and before then hadn't really liked Spanish wines. Best of all the price was something like $11 a bottle. If you can find it, grab it up. Full bodied, assume it was tempranillo blend, much fuller bodied than most inexpensive Rioja.
    Been trying French and Spanish Grenache blends, and some 100% grenache. Just started because I had high school and college memories of Almaden grenache rose that was so dreadful didn't knowingly touch grenache until a few years ago. There is so much good wine in so many varietals and blends from all around the world that we have so many great wines to try. Ain't wine wonderful!
