Grown in Australia and California it thrives in Southern France and Spain where the hot dry conditions are perfect for this late ripening grape. Carignan produces wines that are fruit forward with rich tastes and lower tannins making it a great food wine and pairs with a variety of dishes.
Grenache is just as important to the wine world as Cabernet Sauvignon! It is planted around the world but thrives in Southern France (Rhone) and Spain. Grenache (aka Garnacha) produces rich, flavorful red wines and is often blended with other reds to produce high quality, aromatic wines.
Manchuela is framed by the Júcar and Cabriel rivers, whose sediments make up the limestone-based clay soils. Two large reservoirs to the north provide irrigation during the very dry growing season. Vineyards here are 600-1000m above sea level; the altitude has a cooling effect and combines with fresh Mediterranean winds to moderate the hot summer days. This helps slow ripening, resulting in white grapes that produce fresh, fruity wines with good acidity. Manchuela's red wines show excellent flavour, colour and mouthfeel.
Dry wines like Cabernet and Pinot Grigio have no perceptible amount of sweetness to the drinker and will often be detected as having a drying character in the mouth.
The big wines that can stand on their own. Often premium wines with higher tannins, alcohol levels and oaking levels as they all factor in a bigger tasting wine.
Big reds like Cabernet and ultra premium wines will have higher levels of oak as it adds to the complexity and finish that wine drinkers expect.
