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.
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.
