Winemaker Notes

Attractive golden color, with shimmering pale green highlights. Fragrant bouquet with notes of minerals that blend with a touch of grapefruit and mandarins. Lively in the mouth, with fruit sensations that reveal a fresh acidity. Very pleasant fullness and good length. To be enjoyed perferably whilst young, although this wine will last longer due to its superb vivacity.

Perfect with any type of aperitif, this wine is an ideal partern for seafood and fish, as well as salads, rice dishes with fish, cottage cheese, etc.

Critical Acclaim

WE 89
Wine Enthusiast

Rioja-based Marqués de Cáceres’ first foray into Albariño is a success. This wine is light, salinic and melony on the nose. The palate is complete and offers fine acidity with brine, pineapple and green apple flavors. Good and lightly pithy on the finish.

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Bright straw. Dusty, mineral-accented aromas of fresh orange, lemon curd and spicy mint. Plump and juicy, displaying fresh citrus fruit and honeydew flavors. Finishes smooth and lively, with an exotic guava note lingering. Lots of fruit here; this would be a great choice with Asian fare.

W&S 88
Wine & Spirits

Marques de Caceres's first vintage from Rias Baixas, this is plump with fresh peach and golden raisin flavors, while clean acidity tightens it up. A smoky, spicy white to serve with roast halibut or other fleshy white fish.

View More

Full-bodied but light in both color and tannin, Grenache loves the sun. It thrives in hot climates where it can easily achieve full ripeness. Grenache is best known in the Southern Rhône, where its plush texture and ample alcohol are tamed by savory Syrah and structured Mourvèdre, most notably in Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Grenache originates in Spain, where it is known as Garnacha and is important throughout the country, particularly in Rioja, where it is blended with the more austere Tempranillo, and in Priorat in tandem with savory Cariñena (Carignan). It is also responsible for dry, fruity rosés in Navarra. In Sardinia, the variety is known as Cannonau and produces bold, rustic reds. In California, Grenache has achieved popularity both flying solo and playing a supporting role in Rhône-style blends.

In the Glass

In sufficiently warm conditions, Grenache produces smooth and generous wines that are loaded with red fruit flavors ranging from strawberry to cherry to dark berry. Richer examples can also show plum, chocolate, and licorice.

Perfect Pairings

Despite its bold flavors, Grenache has very mild-mannered tannins, which makes it eminently quaffable on its own, yet easy to match with food. With its uncomplicated, friendly nature, Grenache is the ultimate barbecue red, pairing happily with lamb loin chops or spicy Italian sausages. Unlike most other full-bodied reds, Grenache’s low tannin level ensures that it will not be fazed by a good chili kick.

Sommelier Secret

Sardinia’s Cannonau is often revered for its association with a long, healthy life. Residents of the Italian island often live well into their 90s and beyond, and they credit this antioxidant-rich wine—along with their healthy Mediterranean diet—for their impressive longevity.
