Description

"The 2016 Grenache Blanc gives notes of ripe apples and pears with hints of white pepper, dill seed and crushed stones. Medium-bodied, with a good amount of unadulterated apple-inspired flavors, it has appealing freshness and nice harmony." ~ Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"...a very pretty, crisp dry white..." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

"...a juicy, fruit-forward, deliciously quaffable effort loaded with juicy citrus, peach, mint, and floral notes. It's not terribly complex or long, but packs loads of pleasure and will be versatile on the dinner table." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
