2020 Grenache Blanc "Andromeda"
This wine is a super clean, crisp, and structured summer sipping wine. Green apples and minerals dominate the nose and the palate. Bone dry with flavors of pear and vanilla lingers well into the next sip. Serve chilled poolside or with lighter fare.
Despite receiving not quite average rainfall this winter, some of the later rains and the cool spring buoyed an early burst of growth on the vines. Even with the record-breaking heat as we entered harvest, our vineyard received little supplemental irrigation throughout the summer as our vine canopies matured and slowed without intervention. Harvest 2020 was a bit of a sprint. Starting a tad earlier and ending in early November, this vintage was one for the books which resulted with wines complex in both composition and flavor.
