Rafael Cambra Soplo garnacha 2018

If you think of grenache or garnacha as its known in Spain as a rich sense full-bodied red that often hits 15% you need to try this wonderfully vibrant juicy example from Valencia which falls into the category of what Aussies are calling a ‘bright and crunchy’ style of grenache*. (And it’s only 13.5%)

I discovered it at my local tapas bar Bar 44 where it went really well with a plate of iberico ham (in much the same was as Beaujolais goes with French charcuterie. I reckon it would also be great with chorizo or a late summer barbecue

You can buy it from their online shop mercado 44 for £16.50 and rather more cheaply at indies such as R & H Fine Wines who sell it for £12.99 (but Bar 44 has a restaurant to support). Oh, and it's organic too.

* I tasted two other delicious ones in a Wine Australia tasting of grenache from the Barossa and McLaren Vale this week - David Franz's grenache noir and Bondar Wines Bondar Grenache which are both made in a simiar style.
