More info

Single varietal Grenache wines are however harder to find. A bright red colour invites you to this medium bodied and easy drinking style of wine. Flavours of watermelon, red apples, violets and white spices are integrated to give this wine a fresh complexity. The palate is fresh and long lasting with smooth yet ‘grippy’ tannins to make it the perfect food wine for all occasions.
