Bright ruby garnet color. Fruity aromas of ripe strawberry, fresh plum, and anise biscotti with a satiny, bright, fruity light-to-medium body and a delightful, medium-long watermelon and black licorice finish with well-integrated, silky tannins. An ultra fruity, juicy Grenache; perfect for summer sipping.

Grenache

Grenache is the world's most widely planted red variety, yet its fame is primarily as a blending variety. The most famous examples are in the Rhone Valley as part of Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas, in Spain (where it is known as Garnacha) in Priorat reds, and in Australia, where it is often blended with Shiraz.

Grenache on its own is a light red wine; indeed there are numerous versions of Grenache rosé from France and Spain' respectively, these wines are Tavel and Navarra Rosé. Tannins are very light and aromas are of wild strawberry, rhubarb and geranium.

There are also small amounts of Grenache grown in Italy (in Sardinia, as Cannonau) and the United States.
