2017 Le Mistral Grenache Blanc
Stainless Steel 2 Months
We’re excited to present our first vintage of Grenache Blanc from our vineyards in Arroyo Seco, and boy do we love it. This beautifully fragrant wine presents luscious notes of roses, Bartlet pear, and orange blossom. Though the aromas are quite sweet, the palate is dry and crisp with layers of honeydew melon, rich Arroyo Seco minerality, and a hint of English cucumber. As our Wine Educators say, “I just want to take a bath in this.”
Mission Ranch, Arroyo Seco
Harvested on 10/4 from Mission Ranch Vineyard in Arroyo Seco. This was the first crop from this vineyard after being replanted, same as our Pet-Nat. The grapes were lightly pressed and the juice was sent to tank to be chilled at 50F for 48 hours. Afterwards, it was clean racked to new tank for fermentation using BA11 yeast. The fermentation was cold and slow to preserve aromatics, lasting 40 days. Once dry, the wine was racked to a clean tank until bottling on 1/11/18.
