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. This hairy-leafed vine produces grapes naturally low in tannin and in color Read more »

  • Domaine Lafage Centenaire 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is a fat, juicy, creamy southern wine from Roussillon; with the scent of fresh pears and freshly fallen snow. On the palate, you get a panoply of sweet, spicy white fruit - like Bartlett pears and white pepper - with a touch of sweet cream. This rich vintage has produced a great wine with some aging potential (2-3 years) but no need to wai... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Full bunches of ripe red fruit on the palate - raspberry, cherry and strawberry with strong character and spice and a floral note. Delicate but assertive on entry, this continues to deepen on the palate, delivering more ripe cherry, strawberry and mixed berry fruit, warming mouthfeel, good structure and baking spices through to the finish that l...
