Dandelion GSM 2016 and Les Courtilles Cotes du Rhone 2015

23-Jun-2017
curtillesThe Grenache variety is capable of producing outstanding wines, but some of the key requirements are ripeness and protection from oxidation. Interestingly enough blending Grenache with other varieties can assist in making a more balanced and harmonious, and quite possibly more interesting wine. Here, I review two Grenache-blends, one from Australia and the other France, which retain a sense of their predominant variety, but offer their points of interest. The wines are distributed in New Zealand by Procure Liquor. www.procureliquor.co.nz
