Do you like vegetables and have a hard time figuring out what wine to pour with them? The green, herby components of Grenache blanc can be an excellent solution. There’s an anise-like note to this one that really wants to hang out with fennel or carrots (or salmon). A certain wet-stone and stone fruit character suggests nuts and goat cheeses might be good plays. It’s nuanced enough to stand up to assertive salad greens like arugula and even probably watercress. There’s some tangerine on the finish that says you’d be well-advised to apply a cistrusy dressing to that salad. I think avocadoes would also enjoy an evening out with a glass of this stuff. It’s versatile. And wonderful.
