That might be because it has an amazing scent of hyacinth and honeysuckle flowers. It’s also got good white peach and yellow apple flavor. The mouthfeel is what I think is coolest though – it’s like smooth flower petals. Just a super refreshing white wine.
Grenache Blanc is mostly found in the southern Rhone, where it’s usually blended with other grapes (both white and red), But these guys called the Rhone Rangers have planted it in California and are now making some solo Grenache Blancs that are great. Some good ones to check out:
This one’s from Napa. White peaches and white flower petals, beautifully fragrant. Medium low acidity, crisp but not overly acidic. Randomly, I totally had “High Flying Adored” from Evita in my head for a few hours after drinking this.
