This is definitely a great Summer/Early Fall wine! The 2016 Halter Ranch is a blend of 75% Grenache Blanc, 21% Picpoul Blanc, 4% Viognier.  The Grenache Blanc (blend) is grown on the north facing slopes of the vineyard atop the limestone rich “Adelaida Stone” that underlies the property. Reminiscent of the wines of Southern France, this Grenache Blanc offers up a pale gold color. Aromas of vibrant orchard fruit and lemon curd scents show on the lively, mineral-accented nose. It is silky and seamless in texture, offering concentrated nectarine, orange pith and melon flavors given bite and spicy lift by a gingery element. The bright, penetrating finish clings with strong tenacity and lingering florality.

Winery Notes: We chose Grenache Blanc to be the dominant white grape varietal at Halter Ranch because of its unique and delicate fruit profile, elegance and freshness. Reminiscent of wines of Southern France, this Grenache Blanc has aromas and flavors of white flowers, melons and pear. Delicious on its own, this wine also pairs beautifully with lighter meats, summer salads and anything from the sea.
