Grenache

Grenache noir (pronounced “greh-nosh nwar”), often just called Grenache, is a light-bodied red wine that, in my opinion, is best served slightly chilled. This grape is widely planted in Spain, where they call it Garnacha.

Grenache blanc (pronounced “greh-nosh blahnk”), an important varietal in both France and Spain, is a Grenache noir mutation that developed without color. In Oregon, you will find its lemon and lime citrus flavors pair well with seafood and shellfish.
