RESERVE GRENACHE 2021 QUICK NOTES
APPEARANCE: Medium ruby in colour with a light purple rim.

PALATE: Well-balanced acidity with ripe, yet fresh tannins. Lush flavours of sweet and sour cherry, subtle notes of white pepper and a lingering finish.
PAIRING: Drinks well on it’s own, but pairs with cured meats and lamb dishes. Decanting is recommended.
AGEING POTENTIAL: Ready to drink now. Will age well for 3 to 5 years.
Even though Grenache is known for creating lighter styled wines, the Mischa Reserve Grenache 2021 punches high above its fighting weight. We crafted a more serious style of Grenache to impress anybody who experiences it. Strong tannins and fresh acidity keep the fruity flavours going right into the long-lasting finish.
Grenache is a large lightly coloured red grape, that most likely originated in Spain. It is known for being a Rhône valley cultivar and usually produces delicate, lighter styled wines. Grenache is a late ripening grape that needs hot and dry weather to ripen optimally. This is why Grenache is very well suited for the hot and dry climate we find on Mischa Estate in Wellington, South Africa.
