Grenache * 75cl * 13.5% ABV * McLaren Vale, Australia
The McLaren Vale is home to some of Australia's purest, fruitiest wines. Grenache is often thought of as a powerful, bruiser of a grape variety, most at home in the powerful blends of the Rhone Valley. But in reality, it's is something of a gentle giant - when fermented at cool temperatures and bottled without any oak influence, it retains its freshness and lift. Suitable for lightly chilling (which will emphasise its cool, bright fruit), it displays classic crunchy raspberry, musk and earth notes. Made by the renowned Aussie winemaker Larry Cherubino.
