Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Grenache Blanc is of medium weight with pronounced acidity that lingers on the finish and begs for fresh oysters and shellfish. On the nose you will find aromatics of lemon zest, citrus leaf, and white flowers coupled with herbal notes, dried hay, and wet stone.
Winemaker's Notes
The 2015 is predominantly from the Swansborough vineyard, which is perched high above the American River. The rest of the fruit is from 2 vineyards located in Fair Play and 1 site in Apple Hill. A portion of the grapes (10%), were fermented on their skins, bringing structure and complexity to the finished wine. The wine is fermented with native yeast and aged in stainless steel barrels and neutral oak for 6 months prior to bottling.
