WINEMAKING
Priest Ranch Grenache Blanc was fermented in stainless steel drums and tanks. Native yeasts fermented the wine at a controlled 60 degrees F. The lees was stirred twice a month for five months before the wine was bottled.

HARVEST NOTES
The warm summer days and crisp nights provided ideal conditions for producing balanced fruit with grape ripeness, bright acidity and full flavor throughout the near-perfect growing season. The Grenache Blanc was hand harvested throughout three days - September 16th, 18th and 19th.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The Grenache Blanc is an aromatic white wine with bright aromas of white peach, melons, and honeysuckle. The palate is sharp with good acidity and minerality with a touch of tannins. Hints of bright stone fruits, Asian pairs and citrus make it the perfect pairing for Thai cuisine or to serve with triple cream cheese.
Vineyard Notes
The historic Priest Ranch is now part of the Somerston Estate, a significant property totaling 1,615 acres with 215 acres planted to hillside vineyards. The wines of Priest Ranch are blends from multiple blocks that showcase the diversity and complexity of the combined property. Our 2016 Grenache Blanc grapes were selected from Blocks 6 and 7, a 4.9 acre vineyard planted at an elevation of 1,250 feet.
