2015 Garnacha Blanca
We are proud to share our first varietal bottling of Grenache Blanc, or in Spanish, ‘Garnacha Blanca’. Floral aromas in this wine give way to notes of mineral and spice, while the palate is greeted with lively ripe apple, crisp pear and a silky, yet dense mouthfeel.
Blend: 100% Grenache Blanc
Total Acidity 0.50 g/100 mL
Alcohol Content: 13.0%
Fermentaion: Took place in a concrete, egg-shaped tank and a terracotta amphora
The 2015 vintage was one of the warmest growing seasons on record in Washington.
Warm temperatures continued through the spring and summer, moderating slightly into fall and extending an early harvest.
Overall, 2015 saw very favorable growing conditions, producing optimal ripening across varieties and yielding outstanding wines throughout the region.
The Pinnacle of Winemaking Craftsmanship
Meticulously hand-crafted in our Petit Chai – a “winery-within-a-winery” – our Reserve wines represent the pinnacle of winemaking at Columbia Crest. Sourced from premier vineyard sites, less than one percent of the finest grape yields will qualify for our Reserve program, and these wines receive the same hands-on care and attention-to-detail associated with the world’s most exclusive boutique wineries.
