This Grenache Blanc comes from two moonlighting winemaker buddies in the Central Coast, the heart of California’s Rhône Zone.
What You Need To Know
By day, Josh Baker and Matt Brain make wine for other people—Baker at Edna Valley Vineyards, and Brain at a custom crush facility. By night, they mastermind their own label, fashioning micro-lots of single-vineyard wine, such as this juicy, graceful Grenache Blanc. One of the dominant white grapes of France’s Rhône Valley, Grenache Blanc produces plump whites with apple and citrus flavors. In 2012, the duo purchased Grenache Blanc grapes from the Edna Valley’s Paragon Vineyard, located in one of the coolest subregions of the vast Central Coast. The site’s chilly temperatures mean that this Grenache Blanc retains a juicy freshness that examples from warmer regions lack. To give the wine a rounder texture, Brain and Baker fermented the juice (all five barrels of it) in French oak.
