2011 Cochon, Grenache Blanc “Clements Hills” California.
This lovely and plump Sierra Foothills white is an interesting and fun Rhone style wine that is Grenache Blanc with a touch of Roussanne and Viognier added. The wine starts with fresh citrus and apple butter and opens to mineral laced stone fruit and fills out with hints of butterscotch, cream and tangerine zest. The acidity keeps things lively, and the rich texture gives lots of pleasure and feel without being to heavy. There are subtle spice and flower notes that filter in and out while in the glass and there is plenty of interest to keep your attention, enjoy now.
