Grenache Blanc

Domaine de la Presidente

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grands Classiques Blanc 2015

Bright straw gold. Abundant nose of white flowers and dried yellow tropical fruit. Full-bodied palate echoes the nose adding white pepper, honeycomb, nuts, sweet corn, and a host of smaller layers. A firm backbone of acidity runs throughout from entry to finish. We all know CdP as a red wine, but its white counterpart should be on everyone’s list. The offering by Domaine de la Presidente (from the classic 2015 vintage) is an excellent entry point into this facet of Rhône wines. Well suited to pair with roasted chicken, pork loin, swordfish, game fowl, or root/green vegetable combinations. Drink now through 2025. — 11 days ago

Sine Qua Non

The Line Grenache 2008

Holy moly, where did this one come from!? This had the nose of full throttle drunken elderberries and freshly baked blackberry pie with pepper and spice and everything nice! This tastes like whole cluster Grenache If there really is such a thing. Black and blue, pepper and spice, black cherry cola, mouth coating, inky. Dissecting out all of the notes that were swirling around, it would take me probably an hour, and everyone would be bored and probably stop reading. This was massive. And has probably a couple of decades left! — 16 days ago

Very similar to the mag version I had about 10months ago. I found this SQN Grenache to be crazy layered (as expected), but it has more depth/density than any of SQN’s other Grenaches I’ve had. Silly good right now. Thank you @joe leatherwood .

Precession Grenache 2014

This wine got my attention-inaugural release yet shows sophistication and harmony. I decanted to let some of fruit simmer down. This is a wine that could pair with many foods. Has heft yet not heavy. A Grenache that I want more of! — 10 hours ago

Saarloos & Sons

Matriarch My Grandmother Estate Grenach Blanc 2014

Sunday night and I have opened the 2014 Saarloos & Sons Matriach Grenache Blanc.

On the nose ther is lemon zest, lime peel, honeydew melon, pear dried herbs and minerality.

On the palate there is lemon, citrus zest, green apple, pear, lime peel, green plum saline and minerality.

This wine is medium bodied with medium + to high acidity that leads into a long clean citrus finish. I hope everyone's weekend went well and we all had a great time. Going into the new week please be safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Hillside Vineyard Grenache 2017

Delectable - this is a new Cuvée for Torbreck brought to the Toowoomba Wine Show Dinner by Torbreck winemaker Greg McGill. This was the 2017 Hillside Grenache. A good Grenache but I still think McLaren Vale is better for the variety than the Barossa. — 16 days ago

@Clive McNish Not sure if Yangarra from McLaren Vale gets to the US but their High Sands Grenache is winning everything over here and is sensational. Thanks for the heads up on the Kalleske.

Domaine du Gour de Chaulé

Cuvée Tradition Gigondas Grenache 2015

Holy smokes. It’s been a couple of years since I last drank this traditional producer’s wine and while the winemaking style is consistent (non-interventionalist), the 2015 vintage was particularly flattering. From the pop and pour, this was bursting with character. Loads of pure, crunchy red fruit, cracked black pepper, spices, garrigue...intensely spicy actually which I’m sure comes from the fact they don’t ever de-stem. What a lovely wine and it was positively smashing with our meal. Definitely the best I’ve tried from Gour de Chaulé. Bravo!! — 14 days ago

Torbreck Vintners

Les Amis Grenache 2003

Another massive wine from Australia. Surprised that it was only 14% OH. Decanted for an hour plus.

Deep purple color. Dark cherry and plum on the nose. Wine is exceptionally chewy. Took me forever to drink it. Elements of chocolate and herbs compliment the dark fruit. Lots of CDP characteristics obviously. Long finish. Very nice, but needs to be shared with like 8 other people.
