Grenache (Garnacha in Spain)is a red wine grape variety extensively grown in Australia, Spain, the United States and France. It’s one of the most widely used and distributed grapes worldwide. This is due (in no small part) to its versatility in the winery and vineyard. It grows vigorously with wooden frames, and performs well as a free standing bush.

Grenache ripens late in the season, and the grapes have a thick skin. Its acidity and tannin qualities vary according to terroir, and weather conditions. On average, tannin and acid levels seem to level on a “low, to less-than-medium” spectrum. However, if planted in optimum terroir (soil rife with stone or schist), with favorable weather, the results can be astonishing. Grenache can produce beautifully concentrated, flavorful wines such as: Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Priorat (capable of decades long cellaring).

When vinified as a varietal, Grenache summons rich berry flavors, the tang of spices, and pronounced notes of raspberry. WineStyle recommends this famous wine with: Spicy lamb meatballs in tomato/cilantro sauce, roast squab with quince purée, and potato and cheese stew.

Grenache has numerous names but is commonly known by its French name: Grenache. In Spain it is known as Garnacha, and the island of Sardinia it has been known as Cannonua for centuries. The grape is believed by many to have originated on Sardinia and then later immigrated to Spain by the Aragonese, who inhabited the island throughout the 14th Century.

Grenache in France: In the southern Rhone Valley and all through Languedoc-Rousillon and Provence, Grenache is extremely well planted. The Grenache based Rosé if one of the signature wines of southern France, of which the best examples can found from Lirac and Tavel.

Grenache in Spain: Grenache is out-planted only by its favored blending partner, Tempranillo. It is the second most planted red grape variety in all of Spain. It is found throughout Spain with high concentrations in the northern and southern Spain. This nationwide fecundity is due to the phylloxera pest of the 19th century, which devastated many vine species but left Grenache unharmed. Due to the elimination of competition, Spain relied heavily on the variety to revitalize their wine industry.

Grenache breathes life into many wines. When blended with Mourvedre (also known by its Spanish name: Monastrell) and Syrah, it creates a variety beloved by both Australians and Cotes du Rhone. It is also the main component of Gigondas and Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines (usually up to 75% by volume). Order now!

The vine is hardy, vigorous and highly resistant to drought and wind. Due to this versatility it has been transplanted to South Australia and California. Grenache grows best in in these sunny/hot/arid environments. As such, it comes as no surprise to find naturally high alcohol levels, surpassing even 15% ABV. Australian producers are known to use a base of Grenache when making fortified, Port style wines.
