What is Garnacha Fina?
Garnacha Fina, also known as Grenache in French or Garnacha Tinta in Spain, is a type of red wine grape variety. It's widely planted and renowned for its use in both blended and varietal wines. The grape is known for its high sugar content, which can result in wines with substantial alcohol levels, and its flavors often include red fruit characteristics, such as raspberry or strawberry, along with a subtle white pepper spice quality. The "Fina" in Garnacha Fina usually suggests a finer, higher quality variant of the Garnacha grape.
What is Carinena?
The Carinena wine grape, also known as Carignan in France, Carignano in Italy, and Mazuelo in Spain, is a red wine grape variety. It is widely planted in various wine regions around the world. The grape is known for its high acidity, deep color, and ability to produce wines with intense flavors.
Carinena grapes are often used as blending components to add color, tannins, and acidity to other red wine blends. However, when cultivated in older vines with lower yields, they can produce single-varietal wines with complex flavors of dark berries, cherries, and earthy notes.
The Carinena grape is particularly well-suited for warm and arid climates, as it can maintain its acidity even in hot conditions, making it an important grape variety in regions such as the Mediterranean and parts of California.
What is Garnacha Peluda?
Garnacha Peluda, also known as Lledoner Pelut or Hairy Grenache, is a red wine grape variety that's a mutation of the common Garnacha (Grenache). The term "Peluda" means "hairy" in Spanish, which describes the distinctively hairy undersides of the vine's leaves.
This variety tends to yield wines with lower alcohol content and higher acidity compared to Garnacha Fina, which makes it quite valuable in hotter climates where maintaining acidity can be a challenge. The flavors often include red fruit like strawberries and raspberries, similar to Garnacha Fina, but with a fresher, more balanced profile due to the higher acidity.
