Even though Grenache is known for creating lighter-styled wines, the Mischa Reserve Grenache 2023 punches high above its weight. This more serious expression of Grenache was crafted to impress even the fussiest of wine drinkers. Strong tannins and fresh acidity keep the fruity flavours going right into the long and lasting finish.

RESERVE GRENACHE 2023 QUICK NOTES

APPEARANCE: Medium ruby in colour with a light purple rim.

NOSE:  Once the nose draws closer to the glass, the drinker is met with rich purple fruit aromas of plum and mulberry. As the wine breathes, subtle secondary aromas of tobacco and forest floor rounds out the complex yet inviting bouquet.

PALATE:  This medium-bodied wine offers well-balanced acidity with ripe yet refreshing tannins. On the palate, one enjoys lush flavours of sweet and sour cherry perfectly balanced with a lingering finish. Subtle notes of white pepper spice up this wine and create an unmatched depth of character

PAIRING:  This elegant wine drinks well on its own but pairs beautifully with roasted meats and vegetables, stew recipes with Asian flavours. Decanting is recommended to experience the full potential of this wine.

AGEING POTENTIAL: This wine is ready to drink now, but can also benefit from 3 to 5 years of aging.

VITICULTURAL ANALYSIS

Grenache is a large lightly coloured red grape, that most likely originated in Spain. It is known for being a Rhone 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.
