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.

    Snoothrank:

    I like the effort to make a "beaujolais" come out more like a classic and I think the effort was obtained as this wine seemed to have more character and less spritz. Read More

  • Have you noticed that wherever you are in the world, the Christmas lunch menu ... the call from the kitchen. Grenache-charged Gigondas and Vacqueyras from the southern Rhone come to mind but at £16 ($25) they don’t come cheap. Fear not, under rated neighbour Cotes du Rhone (M.
