Grenache Blanc

2013 / Santa Ynez Valley

$ 34.00

Grenache Blanc is an unusual varietal choice for Napa. And that’s exactly why we make it. With unexpected notes like bubblegum and petrol (you read that right), there’s no doubt that this one has a deliciously unique point of view. Extremely dry, with the pucker dialed up, it’s the bubblegum notes that really pop out and gobsmack you. Our fun wine of choice for the youthful at heart who are always up for venturing away from the status quo. If that’s you, let's be friends.

Tasting Notes

Grenache Blanc tends to be higher in both alcohol and acidity, as this wine so beautifully exemplifies. The green apple and pineapple notes give it a bubble-blowing pucker for that most prominent bubblegum note. The petrol note that gives it such a unique flavor is dialed back a tad here, giving you more complexity to chew on.


Winemaking Info

Grenache Blanc is a prolific varietal that produces like crazy if left unchecked. Pruning it back allows the flavor to concentrate in the fruit that remains. We believe so strongly in quality over quantity that we write it into our contract with our growers, in this case, in Santa Ynez. We pick it late, to let those flavors develop completely. The result is this full-flavored Grenache Blanc.
