Platter's Wine Guide 2022: 4.5 stars

Grenache 2019, Spice Route

£15.95 per bottle

About this wine

The Spice Route Grenache 2019 displays lifted aromas of red berry fruit, white pepper and cardamom on the nose. On the palate, juicy acidity and bright fruit are tempered by subtle spice notes. An elegant and restrained style of Grenache with silky texture and supple tannins.

Planted in 2006, these unirrigated Grenache bush vines from Amoskuil farm have started to show promising results, with the potential to produce complex wines. Even the antelope that roam wild on the farm have a particular preference for this vineyard, often nibbling on the low-hanging bush vine fruit.

Alcohol: 13.5% ABV

    string(523) "One of the most widely-planted red varieties in the world, Grenache ripens late so needs hot, dry conditions for success. The Rhône Valley, Spain, Barossa and McLaren Vale all utilise Grenache’s raspberry and strawberry characteristics either as stand-alone varietals or part of a blend. Some of the greatest expressions of pure Grenache can be found in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, where wines including Château Rayas and Domaine La Barroche’s Pure cuvée embrace the Pinot Noir-like properties of Grenache to great effect."
