General grape descriptions


Grenache is an unlikely hero of a grape. Until recently reviled or at best ignored in much of the world, it is the grape chiefly responsible for two of the world's more celebrated reds, Châteauneuf-du-Pape and, a more recent star, Priorat.


It is a caste originating in France but it’s produced in all over the world. It is cultivated from France to Australia (where it is the main grape), United States (Washington State and California), besides Italy (cultivated in small scale all over the country to produce some good blends), Spain (used in projects in Rioja for example), Portugal, Morocco, Tunisia, Lebanon, Uruguay, Brazil (restricted to some producers and in the northeast) In Portugal it found is home in the region of Alentejo and is the most successful foreign grape  in terms of climatic adaptation. The wines have an intense colour. The aromas are complex with very rich tannins. The most present flavours are blueberry, plum, chocolate, tobacco and black pepper but have some differences depending on the region in which they are produced,  more fruity in the warmer regions or with more spicy flavours to plum, olive and green pepper in cooler climes.
