From the Barossa Valley, a bright and juicy Grenache, with juicy red cherry, plum, savoury spice with smoky aromas on the nose and mirrors the palate. Aerate for one hour prior to pouring with burgers and ribs from the grill.

Grenache food pairings: grilled venison steak, game sausage, roast goose.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
