Red Grenache may be the more famous of these siblings, but the white variety can produce some pretty tasty wines too...

Known as Grenache Blanc in France, Garnacha Blanca in Spain, and white Grenache in English speaking countries, this relative of the red Grenache grape is a mainstay of white blends in the Rhône Valley and Catalonia.

It brings body and richness to the mix, and flavours can range from saline and citrus to waxy and tropical – depending of course on where it is grown.

Decanter’s Tasting team have picked out some great value examples of Grenache Blanc to introduce you to this wonderful style.

*Note that availability for some of these wines is for a different vintage to that tasted
