WORLD GRENACHE DAY

What is Grenache?

What is Grenache?

Grenache (Garnacha) is a red-wine grape grown extensively in France, Spain, Australia and the United States. It is particularly versatile both in the vineyard and the winery, which may explain why it is one of the most widely distributed grapes in the world.
Our Range of Grenache Wines

Taste and Flavour Profile

Thanks to its higher alcohol content, Grenache wine has a medium-bodied taste. Its signature profile percolates with juicy, ripe red fruit punctuated with spicy notes of cinnamon and a violet-like floral bouquet.

Garnacha is made in a variety of styles, including dry, semi-sweet, and sweet wine. When this wine is made from old vines, it tends to exhibit more intense flavours along with earthy and herbaceous notes — not surprising since older vines often produce less fruit, thereby concentrating flavours. 

Food Pairings

Light Garnacha wines should be paired with poultry or pork, salmon, trout or barbecue. A fuller bodied Garnacha makes the perfect wine for a special occasion. If it’s a garnacha blend, much of the same food pairings are recommended although they can better support spicy food and wild game.
