Glug 'The Hipster' Barossa Valley Grenache 2017
Region:Barossa Valley, SA
A famous heritage variety at last gaining a following which allows further wine making attention so the wines get better again. Barossan first and Grenache second and all I can say is where have these Grenaches been all these decades. Well now they have arrived, and your drinking enjoyment will expand by including Barossa Grenache at the table.
They were occasionally made by larger companies but did not develop a following at the scale they sort. It seems specialist varieties need to be embraced and grow among a small school of enthusiasts who do the encouragement to other drinkers. We are believers at Glug and urge on those who are fascinated with this variety.
It is worth remembering that the very expensive French wines from Chateauneuf du Pape are made from Grenache and those we offer are far better value for money. Frankly they are better wines.
