Clarendon Hills-$40-$100

 

Australia is actually a pretty important producer of Grenache, which used to be produced for jug wines as well as dessert wines. With the retreat of those wines from the marketplace came a unique opportunity for Australian vintners: the opportunity to source amazing fruit from bush trained, old vine Grenache.

There are many producers who have taken advantage of this national treasure though no one has been more resourceful than Clarendon Hills, who have an amazing line-up of six distinct Grenache wines. The prices for these wines range from the affordable at right around $40 a bottle on up to $100. Personally my favorite is the Blewitt Springs Old Vine Grenache, which packs in a lot of Australian richness and intensity but remains soft and caressing, even if this is a bit of a fruit bomb!

  • God bless you all at Snooth for obviously discovering my recommendation in a thread with a fellow reader a few months back, for the Domaine du Cayron Gigondas. I shall now struggle to put my hat on, and regret not ordering the 2010.
