Marras Grenache Noir is a bright and exuberant wine with ample sweet ripe fruit, peppery notes and soft tannins. The palate is soft and lends itself to a perfect sipping wine.

The ripe berry notes of wild strawberry and cherry in this compelling wine make for a fine match with the earthy, meaty and spicy elements of mushrooms and chilli in this dish.
