1A variety of black wine grape native to the Languedoc-Roussillon region of France.
- ‘Purists may disagree with me, but I'm convinced that some red grapes - Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache are good examples - taste much better blended than they do in isolation.’
- ‘Secondary varieties, all of these tested and developed at the region's important viticultural research station at Alaigne, include Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, and Syrah.’
- ‘The fruit is less well defined than the blackcurrant of Cabernet Sauvignon, but they are both characterised by dark, black fruit rather than the red fruit often found in grapes such as Pinot Noir and Grenache.’
- ‘This blend of Grenache with 20% Syrah is packed with flavours of plum, raspberry and fresh herbs.’
- ‘They're using a gamut of grapes, from Grenache and Syrah to Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.’
- 1.1 A sweet red dessert wine made from the Grenache grape.
- ‘Bandol, Tavel, Bardolino Chiaretto, Grenache, and Rose of Pinot Noir are just samples of wines that celebrate the flavors of barbecued food.’
- ‘Teamed with this will be two 2006 Grenaches, one being from Rowland Flat in the Barossa and the other from Onkaparinga Hills.’
- ‘As young wines Grenaches are firm and sometimes rough textured.’
- ‘The majority are Pinot Noirs and Syrahs, with a few Grenaches, Rhone blends and the like included.’
- ‘One of the great Grenaches in the world, the d' Arenberg Custodian is a first-rate effort with excellent depth of fruit and palate impressions; always drinks well upon its release.’
French. The grape is known in Spain as Garnacha.
