Grenache is well suited to the Swan Valley and we have some fantastic old Grenache vineyards. Faber Vineyard is one of the regions best!
The flavours are typically red berries with a complex earthy spiciness . It's medium body holds it's weight with perfect fruit structure.
This is attractive & striking and a must try as a red wine lover in warmer weather.
Partners in Wine WA notes: We absolutely love Grenache and think it's one of the most underrated red wines out there. It grows exceptionally well in the Swan Valley and we want everyone to try this. An absolute must is to serve this cooler. Put in the fridge for 30 mins prior to serving, this will bring out it's white pepper and earthy characters. Don't serve it at room temperature.

Swan Valley grenache is a beautiful thing. Raspberry humbugs, red licorice and apple skins form the foundation of this wine. On the palate it is sinewy and muscular (not a tautology in this instance); the tannins have a shapely finesse through the finish. Excellent grenache from a warm climate – where it belongs.
