A flamboyant station that works well as an everyday stop and a night out destination
Grenache or Garnacha (same grape, French or Spanish name) has been used forever in blends like Chateauneuf du Pape or under the wine name for wines like Priorat, rarely has it featured on the front label. But we’re gradually seeing it appear, and it’s a good thing… Garnacha has been a stalwart of Spanish winemaking, providing the easy going, fun wines of Southern Spain for years and now we see it being grown around the world. It has punchy flavours but slightly softer tannins meaning that it slips down quite easily, but it has a boozy edge, meaning you tend to feel it the next day if you’re not careful. It grows abundantly in Spain and Southern France which means it’s a great value party wine.
