Discover Garnacha Wines
Garnache is a black grape variety used to make black and blue fruit-forward red wines that are both lean and medium-bodied. While it is most notably cultivated in France (with over 230,000 acres), the grape itself is said to have originated in Spain, where it is known as Garnacha' and flourishes owing to its tolerance for hot and dry conditions.
Garnache and Garnacha wine lovers all around the globe enjoy this grape's ability to be consumed young. Garnache's youthfulness gives way to fruit forwardness and a peppery character, all of which contribute to Garnache's drinkability. It is worth noting, however, that many old world winemakers are finding how much more flavorful this wine can become when matured. While attempting to strike a balance between the youthful taste characteristics, some vintners remark that the greatest heart in this type may be found in mature Garnache and Grenarche.
Garnache grapes mature late in the wine-growing season for the majority of producers. This need a longer growth season as well as hot and dry weather. Because it takes so long for the grape to mature, the sugar level in the grape at harvest is usually very high. The majority of Garnache and Garnache red wine mixes are dry, which means they have a high alcohol level.
