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.
