Straw-coloured and full bodied, with crisp acids. The nose has bright green apple and mandarin orange aromas, with clean flavours of more apple, mineral and a touch of peach. It typically has a lingering finish with a hint of liquorice.

Serving Suggestions

High on the intensity spectrum, it will pair with a wide variety of foods from fish dishes to rich meats like lamb. The secret to pairing with Grenache Blancs to consider its spiced flavours of cumin and tropical “greenness” in your toolkit when pairing with food. This makes Grenache Blanc particularly well suited with richly spiced dishes, whether they be of Moroccan, Spanish, Indian or Asian origin. Just remember not to go too spicy with heat because alcohol makes capsicum burn!

Ageing Potential

Drinking exceptionally well now and will gain in intricacy over the next five years

Producer’s Comments

Grenache Blanc originated in Spain, and from there it jumped to France where it became a staple as part of the world-renowned Rhône blends and Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines. Because of its robust nature and brightness, it’s still primarily used in blends today—but we were amazed by how straight-up baller a single-varietal Grenache Blanc wine can be: It’s a triple threat—great texture, full body, and lovely aromatics—and its rich, nutty, nutmeg-and-cinnamon spice notes also make it the ideal white wine for both spring and fall.
