Grenache

Grenache is one of the most widely planted red wine grape variety in the world. It ripens late, so needs hot, dry conditions such as those found in Spain or the south of     France. The characteristic notes of Grenache are berry fruit such as raspberries and strawberries. Grenache based wines can develop complex and intense notes of black currants, black cherries, black olives, coffee, gingerbread, honey, leather, tar, and roasted nuts.
