Bethany, 'g6', old-vine Grenache

Bethany, 'g6', old-vine Grenache

A beautiful pale red made from vintage vines

An Australian red, but not as you know it! The smell may remind you of a port, or even sherry, but don't let that put you off, the taste is divine.
 
However it is really going to come into its own with food. We're suggesting something Asian, although not too spicy. Pork, chicken or vegetarian dishes will all suit perfectly.

I would serve this wine rather cooler than room temperature, at 15°C to 16°C.
 
For such a distinctive wine this is remarkably food-friendly, smelling and tasting a lot more normal with food. Its soft, warm and low-tannin nature means I wouldn't pair it with a T-bone steak, but it will suit pork and poultry, especially in dishes with a bit of sweetness. Asian food would suit especially well, but avoid extreme chilli heat which the high alcohol will emphasise.
 
It would also go really well with nuts and cheese, at the end of a meal.
