2017 Grenache Blanc
Sourced from Crater View Vineyard in the Rogue Valley AVA, its floral nose, bright acidity, and round body delivers a pure expression of this Oregon rarity. An excellent match for fish of all kinds and lighter meats such as pork and chicken.
Floral and herbal notes of orange blossom and lemongrass dominate the aroma, supported by fruit characteristics of fresh and candied citrus, apricot, and ripe peach. A full, smooth entry and soft midpalate transitions to mouthwatering acidity for a balanced mouthfeel. Opulent flavors of golden apple, ripe cantaloupe and honeydew melon mingle with sweet herbs, crisp starfruit and juicy golden raspberry. A pleasant balance of creamy weight and tart acidity carry the finish. The full body of this vintage of Grenache Blanc opens the door to a wide variety of food pairing options from halibut and scallops to pork chops and banh mi.
