Grenach Benchmark 18 June 2021
Grenache, Garnacha, Cannonau or Alicante. A hardy grape, tolerant of heat and seldom fazed by a lack of water. Can wines from his grape ever achieve the superlative quality of Châteauneuf-du-Papes in Cape soils and might it be South Africa’s answer to increasing climate change? Or should we leave it to the French and Italians while carving our niche?
Join fellow winemakers, oenophiles and sommeliers on Friday the 18th of June as we compare twelve of the best Grenache from all over the world, with key examples from Illimis and Naudé Family Wines, side by side, in a indepth blind tasting to see how the Cape stacks up.
