🍇Grape Variety : Grenache Blanc🍇

Grenache Blanc is a medieval grape variety originating from Spain. At that time it was called "vino de garnacha" which means wine of Granada. In the 18th century it became the "Spanish plant". Today it is also vastly planted in the south of France where it is grown alongside its cousin, Grenache noir.

Its bunches are rather large, whilst its juicy and sweet berries are of medium size. Grenache blanc is resistant to drought and particularly likes dry gravel or pebble soils. Its production is important if it is pruned short. Thus, it produces full-bodied and opulent white wines with a low acidity level.

The high sugar levels of this grape allows it to make beautiful natural wines, with a nice roundness and long finish like Rasteau, Maury, Rivesaltes and Banyuls
