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.
Great value, different grape, sadly gone
Sorry it's gone, hope to see it again soon.
Great Summer Wine
One of my favs! Love the crispness of this wine.
A nice introduction to a less common grape at the usual great price. Adds variety to the chard/SB usual suspects. Stock up before it's gone.
Glad I ordered a bunch
Watched the review and took a chance as I had never had Grenache Blanc before. Glad I did as I just tried a bottle and it is going to be a great light crisp summer wine. It will be a staple on my boat until I run out.
Light and refreshing!
Fresh ocean like flavor. Bright taste, dry and citrus hints. Held its own with Dijon mustard glazed salmon.
Excellent white varietal
Crisp, dry white with good fruit and smooth aftertaste
Nice summer wine
This is another wine I have never tried (thanks CH) but glad that I did. It is a very nice refreshing crisp white that will be great for after an a day out on the water. Glad I ordered some before it was gone.
Something different and well worth a try
Not a common grape from California, so that's nice to see. It's more complex than the non-Chards here, and very nicely priced. One of my favorite whites from Cam.
Grest warm weather wine
Just received this lovely crisp white. This wine provides enough complexity for a Chardonnay or red wine drinker. I can't wait to enjoy it on a warm evening or even as a food wine with lunch.
