TASTING NOTES

Our signature varietal, this super food-friendly wine has intense aromas of green apples, nasturtiums and crushed white pepper that land on the palate with Meyer lemons, elder flowers and juicy stone fruit minerality. Pairs beautifully with seafood, salads, cream sauces, spicy Asian and Mexican food, and especially sushi!


VINEYARD NOTES

We have 3 acres of Grenache Blanc in our estate vineyard and follow the Lodi Rules certification for sustainable winegrowing. Our Grenache Blanc grapes were harvested from our vineyard which is located in the Mokelumne River AVA of the Lodi Appellation. Our grape clones come from the famous French Château de Beaucastel Winery in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region by way of Tablas Creek. The cool nighttime breezes from the Mokelumne River nearby give the grapes ripe, fruity flavors with excellent balance.


WINEMAKER NOTES

All of our grapes are hand-picked and immediately pressed as whole clusters to capture the fresh, flavorful Grenache Blanc character. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep acidity at its highest, providing the vibrancy in the wine. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure fruit expressions.

Review by Wine Writer Mike Dunne

“Acquiesce Winery & Vineyard 2020 Lodi Grenache Blanc: A variety most at home in France’s Rhone Valley, Grenache Blanc is gaining adherents in California, thanks largely to the gumption and imagination of Susan Tipton of Acquiesce in Lodi. She appreciates food-and-wine pairing to an extent that is exceptional even in California’s winemaking community, and as a consequence styles her wines to shine at the dinner table, which her Grenache Blanc will do for its refreshingly citric flavor, steely structure and dry and snappy finish. Whatever fresh seafood is on the plate, this Grenache Blanc should be in the glass.”

Goat Cheese & Rosemary Soufflé

This goat cheese and rosemary soufflé was a perfect pairing by Rodney with our 2019 Ingénue highlighted in our Elevated Tasting Experience. Poured into mini muffin cups this recipe makes excellent one bite appetizers.
