Garnacha Blanca/Grenache Blanc (white) offers an array of styles, from distinctly minerally wines with licorice and floral aromas to fleshier versions full of tree fruits and occasional toasty notes from oak influence, while Garnacha/Grenache Gris (grey) gives powerful wines that are supple yet elegant with mineral and citrus notes.
White wine is one of the most consumed types, and there’s a good reason for it! it pairs well with a large array of food. Shellfish and fish are two of them since the white wine makes softer the flavors of the foods. As for fishes like salmon, tuna and trout are the most outstanding to drink with white wine.
In addition, the fresh white wine is the perfect match to drink it with rice and paellas that can carry prawns or saffron. Salads with all kinds of ingredients: fresh vegetables, nuts, olives or creamy cheeses are a great companion to spend your lunch or dinner with a glass of white wine in your hand.
If your menu will start with more decadent dishes like foie gras or duck (whether magret de canard or Peking duck), an oxidized white or amber Garnacha/Grenache will be a lovely accompaniment. In the same vein, terrines with onion marmalade or phyllo pastries with blue cheese and roasted figs work beautifully with a fruitier, red tawny style of Garnacha/Grenache.
