  • LE21 Grenache Carignan

    LE21 Grenache Carignan – with Grape Skins (April 2022 release)

    LE21

    Grenache Carignan – Garnacha Cariñena in Spanish – is at once intense and harmonious. Deep ruby red with alluring aromas of blackberry, spice, and leather nuances. A provocative palate of black fruit, cherry, red berry and plum with well-integrated oak and accents of licorice and spice. Rich velvety tannins, moderate acidity, and a long savoury finish.

    SIGNATURE FOOD PAIRING: Southwest Strip Loin with Skillet Succotash

    ADDITIONAL FOOD PAIRING SUGGESTIONS: Grilled lamb, sausages, hearty winter stews

    MANCHUELA, SPAIN
    The climate in Manchuela is ideal for reds; the inland region has a continental climate with high daytime temperatures and long hours of sunshine but is still close enough to the coast to experience cool nights thanks to Mediterranean winds. This temperature swing creates favourable conditions for red grapes to slowly ripen, perfectly developing tannin, colour, and varietal character. The resulting wines show excellent flavour, colour, and mouthfeel.
