The Top 10 of the best White Grenache wines

The White Grenache (Garnacha Blanca) is a white grape variety of Spanish origin. Extending throughout the Iberian Peninsula, it is known by different names depending on the area where it grows: Alicante blanca, garnatxa blanca, lledoné, sillla blanc, sillina blanc, grenache blanc.
We can find it throughout almost the entirety of Catalonia and Aragon, in Navarre and La Rioja. It is a rustic variety that has adjusted well to hot areas and drought. Of medium and compact bunches, the berries are medium sized and very round.
Depending on the area and the different productions, we can find wines made with white grenache with high alcohol content and moderate acidity; wines with body, very floral and slightly fruity, the great majority with a bitter end, very characteristic of the variety.
We bring you a very representative selection of the different wines made with Garnacha Blanca.
