Grenache / Garnacha 

Grenache grows well in hot, dry regions, though it can develop very high (15 degrees+) alcohol.

As such it is grown principally in Southern France and Spain (as Garnacha). It is usually blended with other varieties in the Southern Rhône and Languedoc (Syrah, Mourvedre, Carignan, Cinsaut and others).

Amadieu, Cairanne, Vieilles Vignes, 2017

Yves-Jean Houser is carving out a great reputation for his wines, from vines on the gentle slopes around Cairanne in the southern Rhône. This is from 40% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre with Syrah and Carignan, all bio-dynamically farmed and certified; about 15% goes into old barrels.

Raspberry and blackberry, attractive texture with fine tannins, a beautiful mouthfeel and persistence. Yves-Jean talks a lot about the quality of the tannins, and thinks it is the most important part of his work. The Syrah, from 225 litre barrels, brings black fruit and a good tannic frame. Perfect to serve on a cool night with a hearty beef or lamb casserole. Now-2024

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
