Grenache

(aka. Grenache Noir, Garnacha, Cannonau, Lladoner, Tinto Aragones, Alicante)

Traditionally in California, Grenache has mostly been planted in the warm Central Valley, to produce fruity, quaffable reds and pinks. But the emergence of Rhône blends, enthusiastically promoted by a band of winemakers known as the ‘Rhone Rangers’, has sparked an increase in plantings of Grenache in more esteemed California viticultural zones. Significant acreage of this grape is found in Santa Barbara and Monterey counties. Grenache’s ability to produce in warm climates has made it a workhorse varietal not only in California, but also in the warmth of South Australia and South Africa. Grenache-based wines tend to be high in alcohol, with attractive fruit qualities in youth. Grenache’s sweet berry character, makes it a successful candidate for rosé wines, the most famous coming from the southern French appellations of Tavel and Lirac.

Grenache on Snooth

  • Kermit Lynch Cotes du Rhone 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is medium light bodied. Grenache nose. Red fruited on entry with good acidity and finishes very long with some strong but mostly resolved tannin. Nicely balanced. Kermit prefers stem inclusion and that is evident with this wine. It's very much like a pinot noir in body, interesting wine. Wish I had more. Read More

  • Yalumba Old Bush Vine Grenache Barossa 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Warm and spicy with lots of floral and fresh cherry character. Blueberry, black currant and bold spice with tart acidity and notes of candied plum, black cherry and a touch of tobacco, finishing clean with a bit of birch cola and medicine. Read More

  • Murrieta's Well Dry Rose Livermore Valley 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Nicely expressive rose petal and watermelon fruit aromas. Impressive depth of fruit on the palate with notes of cherry and strawberry, watermelon and cranberry, a touch of smoky earth towards the finish keeps the palate grounded but throughout theres a crisp acidity that plays well against the fruit.
