2019 vintage. Quite unlike any Grenache Blanc I've ever had before. Extremely lactic with sweet cream and vanilla yoghurt, lemon curd, golden apple, poached pear. Very well-made, but definitely not my style of white.

Winery Notes: "Blend: 77% Grenache Blanc, 18% Picpoul, 5% Rousanne. This is our second Adelaida Vineyard bottling. Paso Robles is the epicenter of new Rhone plantings in California. We are fortunate to be able to source grapes from Adelaida Vineyards, who planted grenache blanc, roussanne, viognier and picpoul blanc among other more established varieties such as grenache noir, syrah and mourvedre (or mataro). Their vineyard lies on the limestone hills of the Adelaida District, thirteen miles from the Pacific coast. Warm days, cool nights and balanced vines promote great acidity in the grapes. Fermentation: Whole-cluster pressed. Natural primary finished February 2020, and secondary finished by April 2020. Barrels: 88% barrel aged in air-dried American oak barrels; 8% new, 9% three-year-old; 61% four-year-old, 10% five-year-old, 12% six-year-old. 12% concrete tank aged. Aging: Eight months in barrel."
