Mission Briefing

Codename:

Uniquely refreshing

We love this quirky and delicious wine and, even if you’ve never tasted a Grenache Blanc, we encourage you to consider today’s excellent wine.

It took us a few minutes to unravel the complexities of this Grenache Blanc which, on opening, seemed somewhat reserved. However, as the wine warmed up, it began to reveal itself in a manner most pleasing. As the wine warms, it unveils a plethora of additional aromas and flavors that were not present on opening. Like a young Riesling, this wine is best served as it approaches room temperature.

Grenache Blanc is a rare, one of a kind varietal that is often used as a blending component for white blends. It is unusual to find a 100% varietal Grenache Blanc - which we offer to you, today, with our hearty recommendation.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Ultra pale straw yellow with glinting silver highlights at the edges.

Smell:

As the wine warms, a hard minerality is replaced by a distinct juicy-fruit aroma, with grapefruit peel, young white peach, Japanese green plum, and underripe Asian pear.

Taste:

Yellow grapefruit, pomello, lime leaf, lemon flower, and a hint of slate and subtle dried herbs coat the palate.

Finish:

Very long-lingering with lemon-lime flavors that gradually tail off, leaving behind a soft and supple feel.

Pairing:

Crab claws, crab cakes with fresh fennel or hard cheeses would be superb companions to this exciting wine.
