    Stellenbosch Vineyards Limited Release Grenache 2018 Grenache is a red grape cultivar that originated in northern Spain. Today it is most well known for being an integral part of the Rhône varietals. It performs well in warmer climates and as such has found a home in many new world wine making countries such as Australia and South Africa. The grapes were hand harvested, sorted, destemmed and fermented on the skins. It was aged in 50 % second and 50 % third fill barrels. Only the best 6 barrels were selected and blended to produce this exceptional wine. Only 2800 bottled were produced

    What can you expect?

    On the nose, this wine explodes from the glass with candied red currants and intensity of fruit. The palate is bright with crisp tannins and plenty of bright acids. The long, light finish shows a lovely streak of cranberry. 

    Food pairing?

    Excellent served with hearty traditional South African dishes as well as Mediterranean style cuisine.

    Aging potential?

    The wine can be enjoyed now, but will benefit from bottle aging for three to five years.
