Credo Limited Release Grenache 2015
This is an extraordinary wine with juicy berry flavours and subtle spice undertones to balance the fruit. It has a soft and velvety palate.
Grenache is a red grape cultivar that originated in northern Spain. Today it is most well known for being an integral part of the Rhone varietals. It performs well in warmer climates and as such has found a home in many new world wine making countries such as Australia and South Africa. It has a rich and succulent fruity palate with earthy undertones.
The grapes were hand harvested, sorted, destemmed and fermented on the skins. It was aged in 50 % second and 50 % third fill barrels. Only the best 4 barrels were selected and blended to produce this exceptional wine. Only 1300 bottled were produced.
The wine can be enjoyed now, but will benefit from bottle aging for three to five years.
Excellent served with hearty traditional South African dishes as well as Mediterranean style cuisine.
