Grenache-based wines tend to be high in alcohol, with attractive fruit qualities in youth. Grenache’s sweet berry character, makes it a successful candidate for rosé wines, the most famous coming from the southern French appellations of Tavel and Lirac.

The palate, perfectly balanced, offers texture and layers of flavour in abundance. Lemon, white blossom, spice and hints of apricot, orange and vanilla. The acidty adds a little raciness on the finish. Read More
