Its definitely no surprise to my friends that Grenache is by far my favourite wine varietal. I like the numerous different styles that the grape has. It is one of the most widely planted grapes in the world and because the grape is so hearty, it can have a light colour, and red fruit on the palate in cooler regions and become a “fruit monster” in warmer climates such as Australia. The Barrel 27 “Rock and a Hard Place” Grenache is an elegant wine that is a gorgeous ruby colour with hints of licorice and dark cherry and a slight minerality. Its well balanced and easy to drink.
