Oliver's Taranga Grenache 2018
Grenache can be such a versatile red. Match it with a range of food or even drop it in the fridge to take the edge off it for 15 minutes to enjoy a slurp on a warm night. Here's a great drink from McLaren Vale.
Beautiful savoury characteristics sit behind the wheel here driving you all the way to a happy place. Red fruit early then earthiness, flashes of dark chocolate and fine spices roll in. For a fleeting moment cherry ripe comes to mind as does a whiff of red apple skin but then I revert back to absorbing the spicy finish. Have with duck, pork, barbecues or after a crappy day at work - a match for all really.
Drink now to five years.
