Oldenburg Grenache Noir 2015

Oldenburg Grenache Noir 2015

The 2015 Grenache Noir has a bright, ruby red colour. Maraschino Cherries and savoury perfumes combine to create opulent aromatics. On palate the wine is rich and round yet with incredible finesse and elegance. It is a medium bodied, extremely pleasant red wine that can even be enjoyed, slightly chiiled.
