2017 Grenache Blanc

Having become accustomed to very early ripening among the white varietals during the drought years, the Grenache Blanc that we source from La Vista made us pump the brakes a bit, in 2017.  The grapes were able to hang a little later and get a little riper, but they still retained great acid (pH is actually identical to the 2016, at 3.21).  Aromatically, the wine offers up candied ginger and honeysuckle, while the palate gives honey, mint, orange candy slices and Asian pear.
