Grenache Rose

Grenache Rose Wine Details
Price: $8.50 per bottle

Description: This is a light, semi-sweet red wine made solely with Grenache grapes planted in 1940. The aging process begins in redwood tanks for fifteen months and then finishes for six months in oak barrels, giving it a slight strawberry flavor. Enjoy this wine with fruits and cheeses!

Varietal Definition
Grenache Noir is the world’s most widely planted grape used to make red wine, sometimes made into a stand-alone varietal, frequently as a Rosé, but most often as a backbone of red blends. Its strength is its ability to grow in arid and windy conditions. It’s particularly suited to warm coastal regions of California, Spain and France. Grenache-based wines tend to be high in alcohol, with attractive fruit qualities in youth and a sweet berry character.Used as a component in some Northern Rhône reds, nearly exclusively for Rhône Rosés and as the primary component in nearly all Southern Rhône red blends, Grenache is probably most notable as the base varietal for Chateauneuf du Pape, Cotes du Rhône and Gigondas. In spite of its fame coming from French wines, Spain is most likely this grape’s origin.
