Don received the ‘Triple Crown’

Crack a bottle, crank the wood oven pizzas and rejoice- 175 years on, and Grenache has finally reached the height of McLaren Vale cool. With all the fragrances of a mushroom foraging tromp through the pine trees, this medium-bodied Grenache is full of spice, earth and forest berry aromas.

Grenache is hot right now, with its fragrance and personality, not to mention its affordable price!
