May Showers (of Wine) Bring Happy Hours

Features

2009 Grenache Blanc 750ml 4-Pack

The grape genealogy experts (ampelographers, for the pedants in the crowd) believe that Grenache Blanc was a freak of nature, a mutant version of Grenache Noir. There is beauty in the unexpected, as evidenced by this wine.

Grenache Blanc is rarely bottled by itself, but is terrific when blended with even small amounts of other wines. For this vintage, Martian Ranch added some Viognier, resulting in a wine that comprised of 85% Grenache Blanc from the Estelle Vineyard and 15% Viognier grown at Camp 4. After fermentation, the wine was aged in a combination of French oak barrels (to give it added silkiness and flavor) and stainless steel tanks (for crisp freshness). The Grenache Blanc component adds acidity and structure to the wine, while the Viognier adds fruit on the palate and a tangible voluptuousness. It’s the best of all worlds. This wine is redolent of peaches and green apples with a hint of orange blossom, followed by more of the same on the palate, with some dried apricot on the long, lingering finish.
