100% Garnacha from Campo de Borja, Aragon, Spain
Wines like this come along occasionally and remind us all exactly what enjoying a glass is meant to be about. It's possible to have quality without being pretentious, and that's exactly what this Garnacha (Spanish for Grenache) is so good at.
We produce some Grenache of our own in Australia- it's a fruit-driven style that's generally based around sweet raspberry and cherry flavours, made for short cellaring and big crowd-pleasing. Spain is the birthplace of the stuff, and they do a no-nonsense Grenache better than anyone else on the planet (and often at wallet-friendly price points).
This one is made for easy, summer slugging. Pop a bottle with friends, with pizza, with your next BBQ, with whatever the hell you want. Spanish reds like this are made for lively enjoyment, not a bunch of old men grading them from 1-100.
It's full of juicy, incredibly ripe red fruit courtesy of plenty of Mediterranean sun, no oak, no overbearing marketing hype, no nonsense. Basically, liquid proof that the gods of easy-drinking reds love us.
