Winemaker Notes

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.

Trenza, Central Coast, California
2008 Blanco
Trenza, Spanish for braid, is a winery dedicated to the production of Spanish-inspired New World blends that showcase the viticultural diversity of San Luis Obispo County.

Central Coast

View all wine

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces the majority of the state's wine. The sprawling district covers most of the vineyard land between San Francisco and Santa Barbara from the coast inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley. Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types, and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including Monterey, Paso Robles, Santa Ynez Valley, Santa Maria Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Just about every major international grape variety is planted within this vast AVA, from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. A significant proportion of the region’s produce is generic, inexpensive bulk wine, but the Central Coast is also home to many small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as everything in between.

Other White Blends

View all wine

With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
