Grenache Promotion

Grenache in French, or also known as Garnacha in Spanish, today is the day where we celebrate one of the wine world's most versatile and beloved grape varieties. A red grape known for its exceptional adaptability, resulting in a wide range of wine styles, from elegant rosés to robust reds, it is one of the most widely planted red wine grape varieties in the world. It ripens late, so it needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain, where the grape is believed to have originated. The grape has its actual origin in the region of Aragon in northern Spain. This may be surprising to people as some of the best-known Grenache wines come from the Rhône region of France (hello Chateauneuf du Pape!)

Thanks to its intense flavours - think strawberries, raspberries and cherries and a sweet spicy component to it, it pairs perfectly with well-seasoned meat, such as a good beef stew or grilled quail. On the other hand, seafood or vegetables are best served with Grenache rosé. Grenache has low to medium acidity and low to medium tannins but feels medium-bodied yet refreshing and has a decent amount of heat (alcohol) to it as well.
