Beneficio Winemakers Selection McLaren Vale Grenache Shiraz
£15.95 £19.95 - per bottle
A belting Rhône inspired cuvée. Packed with red and black fruit and wonderful vanilla-spiced oak. There's massive excitement building over McLaren Vale Grenache and we're well ahead of the game! For fans of classic Aussie reds and those looking to try something better than varietal Cab Sauvs and Shiraz.
This wine has fused a parcel of old vine Grenache with a slice of new-oaked Shiraz to create a juicy fruit-filled red that is super drinkable with barbequed anything, homemade burgers or a good ploughman's that includes a strong English cheddar.
|Style||Rich, intense, velvety full-bodied red wine|
|Grape||Grenache / Garnacha blend|
Vineyard & Wine Region Information
The McLaren Vale is getting a real reputation for the quality of its Grenache based wines and is home to some of the oldest Grenache vines in Oz. A large number were ripped up during the Chardonnay and subsequent Cab Shiraz booms, but the quality of the wines from the survivors has lead others to follow. We pepped this one up with some belting oaky Shiraz from a small batch of Fuse stocks and the resulting wine is rich and rounded with classic sweet raspberry intensity.
