Wine of the week. Saronsberg Grenache 2014

There was no doubt about this wine when we tasted it on the farm last week and our opinion was only confirmed when we tasted it again on Monday at La Colombe

It is spicy and savoury with fennel and violets - a robust nose. But on the palate at first it has delicate fruit almost pinot Noir like in character but then it steps ups to a different level, with full red and black fruit warmth and good gentle wooding from 2nd fill barrels. Such a special food wine
