What is it famous for?

From Spanish work-horse grape to representing some of Spain’s most intense wines from Priorat. It is an important component of the increasingly favoured red wine: Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It is also the “G” of the popular GSM blend in Australia where it partners with Syrah and Mourvèdre.

The GSM blend consists of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre.
