This varietal has yet to really make its mark on the Californian wine map. In his usual bold style, Mike Brown has produced a great ‘alternative’ white wine. Typically a Rhone style wine, the conditions in Santa Ynez Valley are ideal for growing Grenache Blanc. The wine shows a rich straw coloring and exposes structure with crisp acidity, you can note classic citrus flavors such as mandarin, green apple and a hint of peach. Its long clean finish makes it a great food pairing wine.
Pair it with: Shrimp scampi, sushi or lemongrass beef
