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.
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.
Just as advertised
Friends really agreed with us that this unusual white is as described by Cam. We have ordered more!
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!
