2016 Grenache Blanc

Tasting 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.
