This wine veers from the original Trenza vision of warm and cool climate wines; the Blanco is made entirely of fruit grown in our SIP Certified Sustainable estate Paragon Vineyard in the Edna Valley. It is, however, a blend. Made of Garnacha
Blanca (Grenache Blanc) and Albariño, it is a twist on two of the top Iberian white varietals. Its New World approach blends these two traditional varietals, but in Spain they are rarely seen blended together.
Tasting Notes from Winemaker Christian Roguenant:
"I call this my ‘Yin Yang' wine. The Albariño is tight with loads of citrus, and bright acidity, while the Garnacha Blanca is rich, chalky and full-bodied. The finished blend is exotic, with citrus aromatics, particularly tangerine, and a mineral driven wet slate character. It's nicely balanced with nuances from creamy sweet oak in the background."
"A wonderfully rewarding wine. It shows the dryness and crisp acidity you want in a savory white, and the fruit flavors, of peaches, grapefruits and green apples, are controlled and subtle. There’s just a touch of oak, which adds softness, and of creamy lees. Brilliant and distinctive. Albariño and Grenache Blanc. Editors’ Choice."
