Grenache, also known as Garnacha, is a red wine grape variety grown in various regions such as France, Spain, Australia, and the United States. It is known for its versatility both in the vineyard and the winery, making it one of the most widely distributed grapes in the world. In France, it is widely planted in the southern Rhône Valley and found in the classic Southern Rhone blend. In Spain, it is the second most-planted red-wine grape variety and is key in the prestigious wines of Priorat. In Australia, it is used in GSM blend and fortified, Port-style wines. The grape has thin skin and is sensitive to climate and terroir, with old-vine Grenache grown in schist or stone producing highly concentrated wines capable of aging for decades. The variety is known for its aromas and flavors such as strawberry, raspberry, and plum.
