Garnacha Grape Variety

Good old Garnacha. Spanish in origin this grape is one of the most widely used globally and is the third most popular grape in Spain. If you do a search in this blog under the Garnacha tag you’ll see I’ve drink a ton of these wines.

In my experience when done well Garnacha wines are light fun and fruity. Done badly they can be a bit watery. Here is Spain they are usually blended with Tempranillo to give more body, but there is a revival of 100% Garnacha wines ongoing as we speak.

Whether you prefer pure or blended varieties if you come to Spain this is a grape you need to get to know.
