2018 Grenache Blanc, Snow Vineyard
The Snow Vineyard is a small, well-manicured vineyard nestled on the east side of Sonoma, just a couple miles from the Sonoma Plaza. The Sonoma Valley warm days and cool evenings create ideal conditions for Grenache Blanc—showcasing the vibrant acids for which this varietal is known. With it’s inherent richness and crispness, Grenache Blanc is a beautiful blending grape (and is a mainstay in our Turbine White Rhone-style blend), but it can also be a stand out as a single varietal wine. The vintage was temperate and allowed for a richer perspective on the varietal—complex, ripe yet crisp.
Pretty aromatics of citrus, nectarine skin, kiwi, and fresh flowers are highlighted by rich undertones. Voluptuous yet vibrant, this vintage displays great complexity and texture. The mouthfeel is round, though still bright, showcasing flavors of white peach, honeycomb and a touch of spice.
