Garnacha

Garnacha

“This is the third most planted red grape variety in Spain after Tempranillo and Bobal and it is also increasingly regarded worldwide because of its versatility and quality. It is capable to produce wines that range from expressive rosados (roses) to the most concentrated Catalonian cult wines in the Priorat region.”

The most extensive vineyards of Garnacha are principally found in the wine areas of Priorat, MontsantRioja Baja, Navarra and Aragón in the northeastern part of Spain, and also in the Southern Rhône Valley and Languedoc-Rousillon in France. Garnacha vines love heat and sun to grow and according to the degree of ripening and the age of the vine, it can be vinified into juicy and fruity roses, young red wines for early consumption or complex and intense long lasting. Garnacha is also used to complement fruitiness, alcohol and structure to several blends.  Garnacha wines are normally full-bodied, with soft tannins and red fruit characters.

Why we like Garnacha?

We like Garnacha because of its strong personality and potential to produce a wide range of different wines. It offers different styles of wines: young, easy-drinking from younger vines and powerful, concentrated and complex from older vines. Moreover, despite what some people think that Garnacha is native of  Italy (where it is known as Cannonau) it is actually native from Spain, from the Aragón region.

Youd love Garnacha if you like…

… well-focussed red wines that are warm and fruity at the same time. When young, these wines display notes of red fruits, with some sweetness, combined with gentle touches of earth and white pepper. As the yields are progressively decreased, the fruit character become riper and the earthy notes more noticeable and are mixed with nuances of leather, coffee and tar.

Also if you like the generous fruit character of the Southern Rhône Grenache or if you like the expression and intensity of a good Châteauneuf-du-Pape (try then a Garnacha-based Priorat wine).
