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.
Bright citrus and nectarine skin add depth to the aromatics of this wine. Beautifully ripe with honey tones, it generously shows richness yet still remains bright and fresh with great acidity and texture. The mouthfeel is gorgeous as are the lingering ripe peach and tropical flavors.
