“Ten years ago I was laughed at by my friends for wanting to hone in on the underdog grenache and it’s white port cousin chenin blanc. Today, well just try and keep the big guys off the properties looking to get a foot in the door. Some call Grenache the Pinot of the South. Whatever: it’s generous when you let it be, it’s always fragrant, it’s frivolous when you unleash it, and it is simply perfect for producing wines in the McLaren Vale regions without the addition or subtraction of anything. 2017 is by far the most interesting vintage I have had the pleasure in 9 years to play with. The growing season was cool and long, so the alcohols were down while the acids stayed up and the tannins matured beautifully.” – James Erskine

P&V Wine + Liquor Merchants welcomes their friend and a true pioneer of Australian natural winemaking to wax poetic on all things Grenache and introduce three of his single vineyard expressions, as well as two of his beautiful cuvees produced, also produced from grenache. Come join in for a memorable Monday night (28MAY).

$25 includes a taste of 5 wines, taxes, fees and a whole lotta love. Not to be missed. A great overview of superb grenache from McLaren Vale.
