What is Carignan

Carignan is a red grape that is commonly blended with other red varieties. Naturally high in acidity and tannins, it makes a good partner with fuller, fruitier wines such as Grenache and Syrah. Carignan provides large yields in warm climates where it thrives, such as in Languedoc-Roussillon and Spain, and contributes deep color to blends.
