Winemaking Notes: The Villa Creek Grenache Blanc was fermented and aged in concrete. Partial malolactic fermentation occurred (40%).
Tasting Notes: Fresh and racy with aromas of pineapple, kiwi, and quince. The palate continues in a similar fashion with an added note of minerality. This wine wears two hats… something you can pop and pour at the beach with your friends OR pair with a nice grilled fish and ratatouille.

"Ripe peach and pineapple fruit emerge from the 2018 Grenache Blanc. It's bright, juicy, and lively on the palate, with serious amounts of acidity barely balanced by sweet fruit."
