Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Grenache Blanc is a contrast to its predecessor in that it is more focused and fresh with pronounced minerality. This is a classic example of Grenache Blanc, having medium weight with a racy finish, coupled with aromas of citrus zest, white flowers and subtle herbal, spice, and stone fruit notes.
Winemaker's Notes
The 2014 version is a combination of 50% purchased fruit from the Swansborough vineyard, which adds tropical notes, and 50% from our two estate sites, which provide minerality and fresh citrus notes to the blend. The wine is fermented with native yeast and aged in stainless steel barrels and neutral oak for 6 months prior to bottling.
