Garnacha can handle the heat
If any wine were to play a contestant on Survivor, it would be Latitude 40. Made from Garnacha, the grape that can tolerate ridiculously hot and dry conditions, this wine is an excellent choice for lovers of light, dry reds. Known in France as Grenache, this grape is the Kelly to Cotes-du-Rhone’s Destiny’s Child. But here in Spain, winemakers find that it makes a powerful, earthy, and refreshing red wine all on its own, without the rest of the band.
Latitude 40 brings a bouquet of red cherry, strawberry, earth, and white pepper with lip-smacking acidity and a smooth finish. Goes best with reality TV set in the wild.
When the sun shines in Spain
Spain is known for making wine with big flavors like baked strawberries and freshly cracked pepper. Something about the sun in Spain hits these grapes differently, and that’s definitely true for Garnacha. The sunshine coaxes flavor out in the grapes, raises the sugar, and smoothes out the tannins.
The perfect red for snack time
Are you a crazy snack person? If you eat charcuterie at least once a week for dinner, we’ve got news for you. And you know that sometimes, red wine can be tough to pair with lighter meals, especially appetizers and snacks. But not Latitude 40. This wine goes with all your favorite snacks: hummus, sweet potato fries, nachos, and popcorn will all pair perfectly.
