Winemaker's Notes

Bitch, a provocatively named 100% Grenache from R Wines, achieves the potential of this difficult-to-grow grape. Winemakers Chris Ringland and Lisa Wetherell use fruit sourced from vineyards in the Ebenezer sub-region of Barossa Valley in South Australia. Yields from the 25-year-old vines grown in sand over clay are modest, 3 to 5 tons an acre.

The nose and palate are a delicate mix of fruit characters; perfumed raspberries, peach, and poached quince. The palate extends to a juicy, fleshy texture with confectionary flavors of strawberries and cream and finishes with spicy, cloves, and nutmeg.

I am a huge fan of this wine. The 2005 hooked me and I was addicted to this serve-to-everyone wine. I very rarely find someone who does not like this Grenache. The 2006 was a little less spectacular but still good. The first sip of the 2007 was disappointing - but don't leave me yet. I walked away from my glass (not something I usually do if its not empty) and swirled a bit more and there it was: gorgeous cherry pie. Still not as great as 2005, if you allow this young vintage to breathe a little, the fruit that comes through it beautifully balanced with that nice Grenache crispness. I'll guess I'll just have to continue to drink this bargain of a wine and love it!

I thought I'd try this wine cause I just loved the name. But, unfortunately the label was much better than the wine. It just tasted very citrisy and bland...but, that could be because it's a grenache and I normally am a Cab drinker? I probably wouldn't buy it again unless it was a joke for one of my girlfriends....

I only got to enjoy one of the 2 bottles I bought because one of the bottles was stale!
