Grenache of the World

Food and Wine

29 Apr 2023 Once Only Event

South Australian grenache hit its stride during the past decade. McLaren Vale and the Barossa are our leading local sources, with the best wineries producing modern, elegant styles with restrained levels of alcohol. Further afield Spain and France continue to star. Let’s take a tour.

Discover grenache at its most impressive alongside a trio of winemakers helping elevate its South Australian standing.

Skye Salter and Charlie Seppelt launched their McLaren Vale label Paralian after a combined 46 vintages around the world. Historic Blewitt Springs vineyards are the source of their grenache, which is refined and perfumed yet still powerful.

The Barossa’s Alkina is home base for Amelia Nolan. There she focuses on distinct terroirs across the property, working with their nuances to craft grenache that is supple and spicy but never excessive.

Sydney-based wine importer Lachlan Barber will also join this Tasting Australia masterclass. He leads the team at Alimentaria, a business specialising in artisanal Spanish produce and wine.

Selections from Yalumba, Jauma, Spinifex, Thistledown, Uvas de la Ira and Commando G are set to feature alongside Paralian and Alkina grenache.
