Cranberry, hibiscus and crushed gravel show on the nose, while the palate carries her typically lively texture, persistent acidity and fresh flavors of pressed raspberries.
Known as Grenache, or Garnacha (in Spain), this hot-climate grape vine can produce high-intensity, high-alcohol, flavorful medium-bodied red wines. Thinner skinned and low in tannin, Grenache is staple grape for not only producing red wine, but also Rosé. Ever hear of a “GSM” blend? Grenache, while lovely on its own, is a great partner to blend with Syrah, it’s bigger and bolder friend, as well as Mourvèdre. Mostly grown throughout Spain and in Southern France, particularly the Southern Rhône, Grenache is becoming increasingly popular in other hotter-climate regions. A go-to glass of wine for the end of a long work day!
