If there’s one thing Spain does well it’s Grenache (Garnacha). From powerhouse Spanish producer Torres and imported into Australia by the equally behemoth Pinnacle Drinks (Woolworths).
Torres, San Valentin, Garnacha, DO Catalunya, 2015
Fun and bright: full of black jubey raspberry and earthy rhubarb this glides effortlessly across the palate with plenty of dark chocolate oomph. Fruit driven, bright, easy and never resorts to being a simple thing of confection. Points for the simplicity of drinking goodness.
RRP: $14 (current vintage)
