Natalie's Score: 89/100

A fascinating Californian white wine made from the Grenache Blanc grape. Aromas of apricot and Asian pair. No oak treatment as this wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks to maintain fruit freshness. Pair with roast chicken.

Grenache Blanc food pairings: grilled seafood, grilled chicken, seafood hotpot.

Reviews and Ratings

Something different from Napa Valley, Somerston Priest Ranch 2016 is a steely and focused Grenache Blanc, with clean, crisp ripe melon and stonefruit flavours. Chill and pair this medium-bodied white with roast chicken. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
