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.

  • Adobe White 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This is the 2014 Clayhouse Adobe White, which is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc from Paso Robles. This wine is a nice, enjoyable crisp, aromatic dry fruity white wine which tastes like a cross between a white Loire, and a white Rhone, which makes perfect sense, given the varietals in the blend. It's currently being cl... Read More
