Garnacha Blanca

“A white varietal that is growing in popularity to be produced as single varietal wines, specially in the Catalan regions of Priorat, Terra Alta and Costers del Segre and in Navarra”

The most extensive vineyards of Garnacha Blanca (“White Garnacha”) in Spain are principally found in the wine areas of Catalunya and Aragón in the northeastern part of Spain, and also in the Southern Rhône Valley and Languedoc-Rousillon in France. Garnacha Blanca is normally used as a blend varietal in France, while in Spain a growing trend has emerged to produce single varietal wines made of this grape, sometimes fermented over its lees and/or in oak, producing rich characterful white wines.

Why we like Garnacha Blanca?

We like Garnacha Blanca because it is capable of producing serious characterful wines, with medium-to-full body and rich in the mouth, specially when fermented over their lees and/or in oak.We also like the fact that, despite being an important blend varietal in southern France (specially in Southern Rhône) in Spain some winemakers are starting to produce single varietal wines of Garnacha Blanca, specially in the Catalan D.O.s of Priorat, Montsant, Terra Alta and Costers del Segre and in the Navarra region.

Youd love Garnacha Blanca if you like…

… deep, intense white wines. White wines which are medium to full body, with green fruit and some floral aromas. Garnacha Blanca, if vinified correctly, could be quite aromatic, even producing some smoky and mineral aromas.

Also if you like white wines from the French region of Roussillon, where White Garnacha (Grenache) is grown for vins doux naturels.
