Crux Winery Grenache Blanc 2016, Sonoma County, California

This is a very nice Grenache Blanc from Russian River Valley. Showing citrus, green apples, grapefruits, gooseberry, white flowers and bitter herbs on the finish.

Light to medium in body with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing with an airy feeling.

Tastes like a new world Sauvignon Blanc. A Good quality wine with nice complexity and balance.

A good food wine and very enjoyable by itself, too.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 90% Grenache Blanc and 10% Viognier. A very small production of only 102 cases.

13.3% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$30.
