2018 Grenache Blanc, Paragon Vineyard

Grenache Blanc is a sun-loving grape, well adapted to the dry, bright Central Coast climat, capable of making remarkably expressive wines. Our Grenache Blanc is particularly well-suited to gastronomy; a heady nose of wintergreen, hazelnut and pineapple salsa, and a rich but crisply elegant palate, fiendishly felicitous with cream or butter-based sauces. We are dedicated to producing wines with a particular emphasis on the expression of terroir, or unique sense of place, and encourage farming practices that restore life and vitality to the soil and respect the farm as a complex and self-sustaining organism.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
What is perhaps most captivating about this wine is the minty/anise aroma that Grenache Blanc evinces when grown on the coolest sites. Refreshing, zingy acidity with suggestions of citrus zest. This is not your Father’s zaftig and slightly fulsome Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc.
Vineyard Notes
Edna Valley is one of the coolest places where Grenache of any stripe is grown, and as such, allows GB to achieve wonderful natural acidities and extremely bright flavors. The slightly strange magnesium-rich soils of Edna seem to stunt vine growth ever so slightly, sometimes delaying maturity.
Production Notes
Stainless steel fermentation, cultured yeast.
Food Pairing Notes
Sushi rolls (with real, proper wasabi)
