Grenache / Carignan / Syrah
Is a popular blend of three dark-skinned grape varieties used extensively in southern France (Languedoc-Roussillon) and the northeast of Spain (Catalonia).
The three components of the blend combine to make typically bright, lively, fruit-driven wines with moderate body and structure. A great deal depends on the viticultural and winemaking decisions of course.
