Garnacha de Fuego Old Vine Super Value
Grenache or Garnacha is usually great wine at great prices. I bought the Garnacha de Fuego for $8 at Grapevine Cottage in Zionsville.
This Spanish wine has a real smooth or silky texture in the mouth with mild acidity but pronounced minerality. For newcomers, this particular wine isn't right on most Garnacha but I liked it a lot.
It's usually a fruity wine with mild tannins. The Fuego may be a little lighter but its an easy drinking Tuesday night bottle of wine. Try it with milder seasoned dishes and you're going to like it alot.
