2016 Grenache Blanc

Varietal: White Wines

In his usual bold style, winemaker Mike Brown has created a great white wine. This Grenache Blanc could be described as "alternative" since it was constructed by marrying a typically Rhone-styled varietal with the ideal growing conditions of the Santa Ynez Valley. One of the best Santa Ynez wineries, Mike Brown's Kalyra has produced a Grenache Blanc wine that was barrel fermented and aged on the lees for 6 months resulting in a wine with a rich straw coloring, subtle structure, and crisp acidity. Classic citrus flavors such as madarin, green apple and a whisper of peach followed by a long, clean finish make this great for food and wine pairing.

Pair it With: Herb-rubbed roast chicken, pork chops (served with fennel or apples), or cassoulet

Price: $24.00
