Las Colinas del Ebro Garnacha BLANC
This light and crisp white is made from Garnacha, a grape often claimed by the French, (Grenache) but one that is
actually from Spain. This one is full of spicy fruit flavors of peaches, apples and pears, but finishes clean and dry. Don’t miss this affordable wine bargain – its a great late summer quaffer to share with family and friends and a super pair with the shrimp fajitas!
