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.

  • De Muller Red Blend Priorat Legitim Crianza 2005

    Snoothrank:

  • Domaine Lafage Grenache Blanc Vin de Pays des Côtes Catalanes 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Expect honey suckle, apricot and tropical fruits with floral notes in this aromatic, lean, crisp wine with balanced acidity. Pairs with sea bass or swordfish (the acid balances the fat in these fish). Consider this a great "hanging out by the pool" sipping wine. Read More

  • L'Aventure Côte à Côte 2007

    Snoothrank:
