Grenache is a late-ripening grape variety planted all over the world, most commonly in its native Spain plus Australia, California, Sardegna, and the south of France. The grape is known for producing soft, spicy, and fruit-driven wines loaded with flavors of raspberries, strawberries, and whtie pepper. Grenache-based wines generally have medium levels of acid and tannin. The grape is called Cannonau in Sardegna and Garnacha in Spain. As Grenache ages, flavors of leather and tar become more prominent.
