Med Red Special Sold Out!
But try this special
This is a colour mutation of Grenache or Garnacha as the variety should be called given its Spanish origin.
Grenache Blanc is grown extensively in Southern France and in Spain. It is a minor variety in California and South Africa. Only small amounts are grown elsewhere.
Technically Grenache Blanc is not a separate variety. It is genetically identical to Grenache except for a small mutation affecting the colour of the grapes. There is also another mutation - Grenache Gris - the grey or pink version.
However, for all practical purposes, it is treated as a separate variety. Grenache Blanc is most often used as an ingredient of blended whites, but it also makes attractive varietal wines, both dry and sweet.
There are only a few producers In Australia (thus far) who are making wine from this variety so it is included in my Rare Ozzies book.
However there seems to quite a buzz around for red Grenache at the moment and some of that enthusiasm is now rubbing off onto Grenache Blanc.
Med Red offer. Includes two bottles of each of six wines, different producers, different regions, different alternative varieties and blends. Plus a bonus bottle. All at an affordable price.
