Cirillo Estate 1850 Old Vine 2009 Grenache

As the custodian of some of the world's oldest Grenache vines, Marco Cirillo has been called the guru of Grenache! The 1850s Grenache, as the name suggests, has fruit that comes from vines that date back over 160 years. Truly remarkable flavours of red fruit, earth and leather notes. An old world feel comes from a glass of this new world Grenache.

4 out of 5 starsReviewed on February 17, 2016

I was a little nervous about this wine because I had never tried a Grenache before. I thought it might be too bold for me, but it was perfect. Very smooth and fresh with strong fruit aromas and flavours. I paired it with a rather heavy dish, vegetarian meat chili. It definitely stood up to the test.

The story of the Cirillo family is really cool too. I love a cool story to pair with my wine. It makes it taste that much better.
