GRAPE: CABERNET SAUVIGNON
The noble Bordelais grape has travelled far. Every wine-growing region has its own style of Cabernet Sauvignon, with its blackcurrant and cedar characteristics. Renowned for its longevity, many of the greatest wines in the world, as well as many of the simpler ones, are likely to have this structured, sturdy, elegant grape variety as at least part of the blend.

The Carménère grape is a variety originally planted in the Médoc region of Bordeaux, France, where it was used to produce deep red wines and occasionally used for blending purposes in the same manner as Petit Verdot. Carménère wine has a deep red color and aromas found in red fruits, spices and berries. The tannins are gentler and softer than those in Cabernet Sauvignon and it is a medium body wine. Although mostly used as a blending grape, wineries do bottle a pure varietalCarménère which, when produced from grapes at optimal ripeness, imparts a cherry-like, fruity flavor with smoky, spicy and earthy notes and a deep crimson color. Its taste might also be reminiscent of dark chocolate, tobacco, and leather.

GRAPE: PINOT NOIR
Pinot Noir is arguably the greatest of fine wine grapes. It makes the fabulous red wines of Burgundy, with scent, flavour, texture and body unmatched anywhere. A particularly old variety, the vine is difficult, only moderately prolific, and often less than happy in some of the newer parts of the winemaking world. However, New Zealand, the South of France and some New World regions are getting to grips with it and producing some very different, fruity, and worthwhile wines. Great with barbecued meats.

GRAPE: SHIRAZ / SYRAH / GRENACHE
Syrah is the great grape of the northern Rhône; the deep, dark, dense qualities of the wine are characteristically strange and satisfying. Scented with black pepper, capsicums, and sometimes violets, the grapes flourish in warmer climes, such as California, Australia and South Africa, where it is known as Shiraz.

Tempranillo is Spain’s answer to Cabernet Sauvignon, the grape variety that puts the spine into a high proportion of Spain’s most respected red wines. Its grapes are thick-skinned and capable of making deeply coloured, long-lasting wines, which are not, unusually for Spain, notably high in alcohol. Lamb dishes are perfect partners.

GRAPE: ZINFANDEL / PRIMITIVO
Originating most likely in the Adriatic, this exotic, minerally, black-skinned grape, grown predominantly in California, can make dark, brooding wines for barbecued steak or, bizarrely, sweetish, light-hearted quaffing rosés called ‘blush’.
