ABOUT SPANISH GARNACHA

Garnacha, also known as Grenache in France, is one of Spain's most cherished and widely planted grape varieties, particularly thriving in regions like Aragón, Priorat, and Rioja. Renowned for its versatility, Garnacha produces wines that range from vibrant, fruit-forward reds to elegant rosés and even complex, old-vine expressions. Spanish Garnacha is celebrated for its rich, ripe flavors of red berries, such as strawberry and raspberry, often accompanied by subtle hints of pepper, herbs, and earth. These wines typically exhibit a medium to full body with moderate tannins and a characteristic juiciness that makes them highly approachable. In the hands of skilled vintners, Garnacha can age gracefully, developing additional layers of complexity. Whether enjoyed young and fresh or aged and nuanced, Spanish Garnacha offers a delightful expression of the country's diverse terroir and winemaking tradition.
