Otherwise known as Garnacha Blanca, Grenache Blanc is full bodied wine grown mostly in Southern France and Spain. It is most often blended with crisper grapes, but will make meduim to full bodied varietal wine with the ability to show florals, ripe green fruits and minerality.
Martian Grenache Blanc can be a bit high maintenance. It likes our warmer vineyard but we watch it carefully for sunburn. It easily ripens and gives us, consistenlty, high quality grapes.
