2016 La Dame Blanche

Grenache Blanc

Our 2016 La Dame Blanche offers aromas of anise, fresh ginger and citrus. In the mouth, mellow lemon curd and grapefruit give way to a bright mineral finish. I would describe this wine as bright and playful and pair it with your favorite salads, bright fresh cheeses and lighter meat and fish.
Our 2016 “La Dame Blanche” is our second vintage and is comprised 100% of Grenache Blanc. Grenache Blanc is a southern Rhone varietal and is thought to be a mutation or the white variant of Grenache Noir. It is thought to have originated in northern Spain and is widely planted in Spain and the Rhone region of France. Grenache Blanc can produce wines that possess rich flavor and texture while maintaining a bright acidity.

Our Grenache Blanc fruit was sourced from Camp Four vineyards in Santa Ynez Valley and harvested on 30 September. The fruit was picked with a pH of 3.3 and a Brix of 24.0, resulting in a vintage with excellent concentration and good acidity. The grapes were whole cluster pressed, cold settled and initially fermented in stainless steel. 50% of the lot was transferred to a new LT French oak hogshead for 3 months, the balance was transferred to stainless steel barrels. Battonage was practiced for 6 weeks and then the combined wine was aged on undisturbed lees for 7 months in stainless steel barrels.
