Our Wine Of The Week is 2017 Acquiesce Grenache Blanc. Taste before reading the label and you’ll swear this wine is a Rhône import. The unique soft shouldered bottle, French-style label graphics and golden color give the impression of a white Rhône or Burgundy. The journey continues on the nose and palate. Lots of tree fruits with moderate minerality that make this Grenache Blanc an excellent pair with summer foods or a crisp, refreshing sip. But 2017 Acquiesce Grenache Blanc isn’t produced in France – it is estate grown and made here in Northern California, right outside Lodi (see map below).
Retail price at the tasting room is $26, and visiting the tasting room may be the only place you’ll find it. I received the pictured bottle as a holiday gift and have had a tough time finding more in local shops, probably because only 379 cases were made.
The Acquiesce Winery tasting room is closed until March 2019, but add a visit to this white and rosé-only winery to your Wine Adventures schedule for next year and enjoy some great California wines.
