Description

"The 2017 Grenache Blanc Rodney's Vineyard has a nose of fresh quince, yellow apple, pear and white peach with notes of oyster shell, saline, baker's yeast, crushed stone and honey. Light to medium-bodied and lively in the mouth, it's very minerally with tangy acidity and a cleansing finish." ~ Wine Advocate 

"...a crisp, bone-dry white to drink now and over the next year or two, while the green apple and white orchard fruit flavors remain bright and tightly focused." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous 

This Grenache Blanc, sourced entirely from Rodney’s’ Vineyard on the Fess Parker Home Ranch, springs to life on the nose with aromas of honeydew, candied ginger, white peach, and lemon.

The pale straw color evokes the scent of jasmine, which you’ll find before sipping into flavors of grapefruit, white nectarine, key lime, and Meyer lemon. This Grenache Blanc offers bright, fresh acid and minerality, the result of 9 months in 80% stainless steel tanks and 20% neutral French oak barrels.
