83% Sauvignon Blanc, 17% Grenache Gris

Sauvignon Blanc is often typecast as being some combination of tart, grassy and a bit light. This wine is none of those things. Through the combination of barrel fermentation, lees aging and a bit of new oak, this wine exhibits richness, body and complexity rarely found in Sauvignon Blanc. The Grenache Gris (a rather obscure variety half-way between (red) Grenache and (white) Grenache Blanc) was barrel-fermented in half-barrels (114L) and was included to add color, texture and unique flavors.
