This is definitely a lightweight version of the Chateau Chateau Grenache blends from R Wines. Not as rich and complex as its more expensive siblings, this is still a good casual wine, with the tell-tale aromas of Barossa region projects, with wafts of raspberry and cherry, mixed with earth and forest floor. Fruit-forward and pleasant on the palate, notes of raspberry mingle with hints of other red fruits and earthy tastes that dance through a silky smooth mouthfeel.

2007 Bitch South Australia Grenache – this should be interesting, Color: very light, like rose water, Nose: not getting much at all, smells like cotton candy (“Or caramel!” – Hector), Taste: woh, like a funky grape juice, kind of like what honey mustard is to real mustard but not in a good way Lamarr: D- (woof)

Has nice flavor. I drink with use of an aerator. I think it is very good for the price!

If I was stuck on a desert island and was forced to only drink this wine, I'd consider myself lucky! This wonderful Grenache Mataro blend from the dynamic duo at R Wines was like a party in my mouth. Silky smooth body, wonderful fresh raspberry flavour and a hint of something I still can't place(dirt, maybe?) make this a boite worthy of grilled steak, an outdoor seat and you. And the label ain't too shabby, either.

Flavor hard to describe. Light and airy with fruit. Drink on it's own - Paired with food it tastes like salt water.

The first sip is like an explosion of blackberries, followed by a full, smooth wave of jammy goodness. I get nervous whenever I try a new bottle that come across as a novelty brand, but Bitch was perfectly behaved for my recent night in.

Wine Tasting NotesThe nose and palate are delicate mix of fruit characters; perfumed raspberries, peach, and poached quince. The palate extends to a juicy, fleshy texture with confectionary flavors of strawberries and cream and finishes with spicy, cloves, and nutmeg.This ain't your Daddy's Grenache. In fact, it ain't merely a Grenache. It's Bitch. Bitch. Bitch. Bitch. "The Bitch is back." Bitch. "Beootch." Bitch. For some reason in 2005 I became obsessed with two things: Grenache and the word bitch. I'm not sure how exactly they came together, but suffice it to say that they did.This isn't a wine. It's an experience. Bitch in. Bitch on. Bitch out. If you google the word bitch, you'll find hundreds of meanings and entries. The word bitch has meaning that goes way beyond dog or the derogatory. One of my favorites: B.I.T.C.H. - Babe in total control of herself.This is a wine about pleasure. Subversive pleasure. Not everyone needs to approve in order for YOU to have pleasure.Winemakers will tell you that Grenache is a bitch to grow. And, it's a bitch to make. It's a wine that can easily be vapid, but potentially as profound as wine gets.The Bitch is from Barossa. It's mainly Northern Barossa fruit. Mainly bush vine, but also some trellised vineyards. Chris Ringland makes the wine. The wine sees no oak. The objective of the wine is to provide pure, explosive, unadulterated, hedonistic, uncompromising, juicy Grenache.

Classic lighter grenache color of a medium ruby core and a lighter garnet rim. The aromas are very spicy and floral with some candied cherry, fresh grape and a hint of some dark scorched earth. Incredibly smooth in the mouth making it easy to drink. ... Mike Supple. A Grenache wine from South Australia in Australia. 2007 R Winery The Bitch Grenache 750ml
