Deceptively dry and tangy.

Gren-ash or Gar-natch-ah

Grenache or Garnacha (same grape – French or Spanish name) can be made into different styles of rosé, but the best is the European style which is dark in colour, punchy flavoured but not as sweet as the New World Rosé giving it a more refreshing food friendly edge. It can be a bit deceptive as it’s so fruity when you smell it, but cleaner and fresher, which appeals to the dry wine lovers. Sometimes the label won’t say the grape name but the region, like Languedoc.
