THE VARIETY

Grenache

Grenache is believed to have originated from the Italian Island of Sardinia, but regions within Southern Rhone and Spain made the varietal famous around the world. Beyond Europe, the varietal is also quite popular here, specifically in areas like the Great Southern, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley. Grenache is a go-to easy-drinking red best drunk youthful with ripe red fruit and spice, and is wonderful as an afternoon aperitif with a cheeseboard. The ripe fruit characters and brighter acidity also means these wines pair well with salads and Asian cuisine with a bit of spice.

THE REGION

Barossa

The Barossa is a renowned wine-producing region northeast of Adelaide, in South Australia. The region includes both the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. The former is home to a warm climate that produces the type of big-bodied shiraz for which Australia has become famous. On the other hand Eden boasts a cool climate. With such diversity of growing conditions and soil types, the Barossa offers a variety of wine styles for wide-ranging palates.
