6x KROMTAK Grenache Noir

This medium- to full-bodied Grenache Noir boasts well-balanced and accessible supple tannins. When it’s fuller in body, the deeper fruit notes are more pronounced but when it’s lighter, expect more of those high-toned notes like strawberry and currant.

So groei die drome van verganklik ek.

PAIRING SUGGESTIONS

Grenache is very versatile and food friendly, that is why most prefer this as a chilled summer wine. Therefore, when we talk about pairing food with grenache, it’s all about what dishes will complement the spice in the wine. Turkey is a winner, as are other game meats such as duck. If you’re pescatarian, opt for a meaty style of fish such as a tuna steak. Don’t be afraid to bring out the grenache at a braai (barbecue) either, as it goes well with a grill. Alcohol is a solvent to capsaicin, which is the heat unit in spicy foods. A lighter-alcohol Grenache served slightly chilled can help reduce the burn of spicy food.
