A crisp, white wine with origins in Spain and most widely found in the Rhône region today, Grenache Blanc is a rarity among US plantings. I’m never one to pass up terrific quality at a good price (especially with a rare varietal like this), so it was an easy decision to jump on this gem from Santa Barbara.
Sourced from an estate whose first plantings date back to the early 80s, Lot 587 is a lively, resplendent white wine that Sauvignon Blanc and Arneis drinkers will find exceptionally pleasing. As with our Lot 588 (perhaps the best bang-for-your-buck California Cabernet you can find these days, I might add), Lot 587 is a delicious showcase of the range and quality that Santa Barbara wine country has to offer.
Ordering More RIGHT now!
Just arrived today, and I usually allow shipped wines to rest for a few days, but what the heck...it was 20 degrees here in Wisconsin, and the wine was cold when I got it home today from the office, so opened a bottle, and it is nearly gone! Crisp, dry, and minerally, so my last glass will go with the stir fry we are doing right now!
excellent; the best
very crisp; delicious, fabulous in all ways
Crisp with a dry finish. Great value
Crisp, fresh, dry white wine. Well balanced with light fruit flavors and mineral finish . Food friendly (spicy Asian dishes, cheese or appetizers) or nice alone. A great value. My first experience with Grenache Blanc, a hit with my family. Another great value from Santa Barbara.
crisp fruit--unamerican--in a good way
something between a white rhone, arneis, and new zealand sauvignon blanc---but perhaps better. and amazingly priced. not complicated, just very, very drinkable.
Crisp with a dry finish, great value
Crisp , delicious, well balanced, with a subtle mineral finish. Paired well with sharp white cheddar cheese. Never tried Grenache Blanc before and glad I've ordered more for the holidays before it is sold out. Thanks CH Wines.
Lot 587...Get it while you can!
I just received and tasted my first bottle of Lot 587 Grenache Blanc. I just placed an order for an additional case...It's that good! Disclaimer: I have worked in the wine industry for the last 11 years. I've tasted a lot of good and bad wine. I've made my own blend for the winery I work at. I have never tasted a wine like Lot 587. I wish I had the means to make an equivalent. Cameron, thanks for allowing me to be introduced to some great wines at unbelievable prices. It's great to know I am now drinking wine that would normally be out of my pay grade!
This is the first time I have had a Grenache Blanc., and I'm very pleased that we tried it. I very nice, drinkable wine. A friend to who we served it, who always asks for Pinot Grigio, found it outstanding. It's her new favorite.
Light and quaffable...a pleasant, well-balanced wine, with a nice mineral undertone. Keep the "light" in mind when pairing it with food.
Love the non-typical whites
I've been a big fan of the non-oaked and not sweet whites by CH, also the not too citrusy. This is another one that has pleased, and the price is awesome. I usually attribute this to summer by the pool, however, I'd also consider this for holiday gatherings.
(Also consider the current release of the Pinot Gris, if you like the taste profile; both are the GF's favorite whites at this moment.)
Excellent bouquet for a white, A crisp embrace of your taste buds.
It is the first time that I have a Grenache Blanc, and it paired surprisingly well with everything I’ve had it with: Brie, pasta with vegan mushroom sauce, even mustard pizza (it’s a Jersey thing). The citrus notes are obvious and delightful. No flabbiness here
