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.

  • Cameron Hughes Priorat Lot 49 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Complex and deep in unique taste. Earthiness. After the first bottle, I ordered another 18 to cellar for at least five years. I think this will open up beautifully with time. Good now but will be excellent in the future. It is a treat. Read More

  • La Spinetta Rivetti Langhe Nebbiolo Starderi 2004

We are now on our last bottle a... Read More

    A lot of chocolate and a dash of smoke, with a bit of spice. A rather thick wine. Good to go with BBQ sauce perhaps? Read More
