Signature Series G-18 Grenache 2018, Robert Oatley, McLaren Vale, South Australia 2018/19 75cl

A vibrant, perfumed Grenache with classic raspberry, musk and earthy notes. The warm, maritime-influenced climate and red-brown loamy soils produce rich dark fruit characters and supple tannins. A great quaffing wine and an Eton Vintners essential ‘all year round’ wine. Try serving lightly chilled. A lovely vintage that really brings out the perfume and juiciness of this grape. Good with grilled and roasted white meats, fish or shellfish and mature cheeses. A lovely alternative to white or rosé as a summer aperitif.

Grenache/Garnacha

Though the world is more familiar with its French name (Grenache), Garnacha probably originated in the North of Spain. It is now found, under a host of regional names, in Sardinia (as Cannonau), Greece, Israel, North Africa, France, Spain and Cyprus. Adoring the Mediterranean sun, it can accumulate up to 16 degrees of potential alcohol while still on the vine. It thrives in hot, dry and windy conditions grown as a bush vine. Less typically for a warm climate grape it has a thin skin. This means it lacks, at least at normal yields, the depth of colour for many red wines, but makes it well-suited to soft and fruity rosés and rosatos. The concentrated fruit from old, low-yielding vines like those in Priorat and Châteauneuf-du-Pape can, however, give wines of powerful intensity and deep colour, which demand cellaring. Garnacha's affinity for hot hillsides has also led it to California and Australia, where it was the most-planted grape until it was overtaken by Shiraz in the 1960's.
