Grenache Wine Pairing Is As Versatile As It Gets

photo credit: unknown The thing that makes Grenache a great wine is its blending abilities. In France, you can find some superb Rhone wines that use Grenache as the base blend, as with Gigondas, Cotes du Rhône and Chateauneuf du Pape. In Spain, where it is called Garnarcha, it is the dominant grape in blended wines from Rioja. In Australia, Grenache is often blended with Shiraz to make some powerful red wines such as the famous Grenache, Syrah, Mouvèdre blends, or GSM wines.
