'This is real Grenache. Serious Grenache, with an attitude, and the most phenomenally complex aroma of wild berries, pepper, mushroom, gravel and iron. Depth, intensity and generous structure, with wild strawberries and peppery spice, earthy undertones and brooding tannins.' Emanuel Pesqueira, Edwardian Hotels London. 'Ripe and sumptuous, with richness relieved by peppery notes and fresh acid.' Sarah Jane Evans MW, team leader.
