Oddly enough, I just purchased three of these. Unfortunately, this Woot came before the wine arrived, otherwise I would've labratted it for you all.

Interested to hear from the winery on this one. I think I remember reading that the winemaker has changed since this 2009 release along with the label and name for this Grenache Blanc.

I am so not a white wine drinker, but this one is calling to me. Peaches, orange blossom, AND apricot? *sigh*

This is the first instance where woot does not have the best deal. This was just listed on a different site last week at $13 per bottle (which is probably where redwine got it). Shipping is higher than woot but still worked out to a better deal by $2. Sorry woot, not impressed with this one.

Agreed. Two woots here $100.98 delivered, Six bottles the other site $89.18 delivered. My purchase percentages are morphing elsewhere.

I think the bottling date is for the 2011 vintage. Anyhow, I loved the red Grenache they offered on Woot in the spring. If they offer some 2011 rose' or more reds I'm definitely in!!!

For the people that missed out on the "Other Deal"; any comments that would push me to buy this? It sounds like a lovely summer wine. I did not see much information on if it is sweet/dry/etc. The winery website is almost useless.
Thanks

I think that is the problem, nothing happens. I click the giant gold button and it seems to reset the webpage. I did get a page timed out error once. I was able to enter two other WOOT deals and buy without issue. One of them the LL Wine Woot deal. It is just this deal that does not bring me to the purchase page.

Hi Redwinefan, I work with Martian Ranch. You are correct, the winery hired Mike Roth, who also makes wines for Demetria Estate in Los Olivos. Since he took over production beginning with the 2011 harvest, the "older" vintage wines are on special discount. These wines are selling in top wine stores from $20-25/btl so this is a real opportunity. The previous winemaker who made this wine is Brett Escaler formerly of Fess Parker and who makes his own brand called Consilience. This single vineyard wine from Camp 4 is a steal at today's price!

Thanks, I may buy some more today since I do really like a good Grenache Blanc. How long of a life do you think this wine has left in it?

Did you dramatically change the style of the Grenache Blanc (Mothership) you are making with your new winemaker?

Very tempted. Now if I could only arrange that it won't get cooked in the heat of the summer on it's cross-country trip!

99.9% certain the wine is fermented dry, or with RS below thresh hold to just offset the acidity.

GB usually ages well because of acid levels, but without knowing the TA and pH, hard to say. Wish we could get.

This note on CT is promising
Vintage: 2009
100% Malolactic fermentation
Cold stabilized, no fining, light filter for clarity (5 micron)
Bottled February 28, 2012
310 cases produced

Think Chardonnay-ish without the buttery aspect.

This has nothing to do with the statement you quoted about RS (residual sugar).

If your in, I'll take one off your hands.
BIWBM is not going well. But on the other hand my son could be born any day now and my wife will return to being my partner in wine and I should stock up on what she would like.

This seemed too good to pass up and with the price marked down to $41.99, I am in for one! I can't wait to try it.

I am very familiar with GB, I make it commercially. Don't see a big correlation between Chard, even Feench chablis style etc and GB though.
