About this Red...

Description

Sweet and spicy. A wine that likes to be the center of attention.

Grenache isn't as popular a grape in the US as it is in Europe. But how did it end up in South Africa? Many think it was James Busby in the 1830s who made a stop on his way to New Zealand and planted some vines. Messrs. & Co. (pronounced Mess-urs, as in the plural of Mr.) might be connected to those original grapes.

There is something that feels adventurous about this one. It's upbeat and fruit-forward, but its soft textures go with the flow. You might get aromas of oak or wood, perhaps an homage to the H.M.S Imogene—the ship that brought Mr. Busby across the seas. There is a bit of sweetness, similar to a ripe plum, but you might sense a little spice in the finish. As a result, this wine pairs better with white meat than red.

Grenache now flourishes in South Africa, where the vineyards run across mountains and hillsides. It's a beautiful migrant story of a grape coming to a new land and making the most of the region's potential.

You’ll love it if:
  • You like a good rags-to-riches story
  • You like your wine strong
