The Wine:
The Grenache Blanc was picked and pressed to tank. Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Grenache Gris were hand picked and basket pressed independently with fine free run separated. All juice extracted to stainless steel tank then transferred for fermentation in old French oak hogsheads and barriques. Matured in barrel on lees for 6 months before blending. Bottled February 2022. Certified Organic and Biodynamic.

Blanc is the result of exploration into the best white varieties hailing from the ancient north-west Mediterranean. Native to the southern Rhône, these Châteauneuf varieties have been traditionally blended for many years, encouraging our pursuit of a progressive white blend from our Estate. With careful vineyard management and a light handed approach in the winery, the Blanc showcases the vibrant, textural and crunchy style these varieties provide in unison.

The Review:
Gary Walsh, The Wine Front - 94pts
"Pear and apple, almond meal, a slight aniseed top note, a discreet amount of white pepper and spice. It’s a little bit juicy, with white fleshed fruit, some bright tangerine acidity and flavour, plenty of chalky texture, and a dusty and subtly nutty/briny/lemon peel finish of excellent length. I really like it."
