Crafted by Ridge Vineyards and led by winemaker Trester Goetting, the Ridge Grenache Blanc 2022 emerges as a standout varietal wine. This blanc wine, boasting an 86% Grenache Blanc and 14% Picpoul blend, offers an engaging and accessible experience for wine enthusiasts across the United States. With grapes sourced from Adelaida, Fossil Creek, and Halter Ranch vineyards in the Paso Robles appellation, this grenache white wine reflects the unique terroir of the Central Coast, renowned for its Rhône Valley-inspired varietals.

The Ridge Grenache Blanc 2022 presents an attractive golden color, inviting the drinker into a world of aromatic complexity and vibrant tastes. The aroma unfolds with layers of white flowers, peach, ripe melon, pineapple, key lime, and wet stone, capturing the essence of its varietal character. Upon tasting, the wine reveals a bright and clean entry with a medium body. It is distinguished by its complex mouthfeel, incorporating minerality and fresh natural acidity, culminating in a mouthwatering finish that is both refined and memorable.

The 2022 vintage benefited from the unique growing conditions of western Paso Robles, where cool summer fogs and limestone soils contribute to the wine’s distinct profile. A careful winemaking process, including whole-cluster pressing and natural fermentation, further enhances the wine’s character. Aged on the lees for six months, the wine achieves a full body and complexity that belies its gentle handling and sustainable farming practices.

Wine critics have lavished high praise on the Ridge Grenache Blanc 2022, with both Wine Enthusiast and Owen Bargreen awarding it 93 points. According to Wine Enthusiast, this blend is notable for its “acidic heft,” with aromas of sliced peach, coconut, and macadamia nut being perfectly balanced by crushed stone and chalk. The palate is celebrated for its rounded flavors of salted peach and melon, maintaining vibrancy and firmness throughout.

Owen Bargreen highlights the wine’s “alluring aromatics” of star jasmine and honeysuckle, complemented by kiwi and kumquat notes. Its palate is praised for being fresh and lithe, offering juicy starfruit and pear flavors. This Southern Rhône-inspired wine is recommended to be enjoyed over the next five to seven years, highlighting its immediate appeal and aging potential.

The Ridge Grenache Blanc 2022 stands out as a prime example of Grenache Blanc’s versatility and appeal. From its golden hue and aromatic complexity to its vibrant taste and elegant finish, this wine captures the essence of the grape grenache and its exceptional adaptation to the Paso Robles region. Whether you’re new to white grenache wine or a seasoned aficionado, this offering from Ridge Vineyards is a compelling addition to any wine collection, promising a unique and enjoyable tasting experience.

This Grenache Blanc wine, also known as Garnacha Blanca, brings a touch of elegance to the table. With tasting notes that hint at green apple freshness, this wine undergoes malolactic fermentation, ensuring a creamy texture that complements its crispness. Perfect for those who enjoy a wine with character and a hint of high alcohol warmth.

From the sun-drenched vineyards of San Luis Obispo, this wine echoes the mastery found in Châteauneuf du Pape, blending the richness of Grenache Noir with the bright, fruity profiles of Grenache Blanc and Granache Blanc. It’s a symphony of flavors, offering a unique twist on the traditional wine grape, creating a memorable experience with every sip.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This bottling from three vineyards employs 14% Picpoul to add acidic heft to the formula, which checks off so many white-wine boxes. Aromas of sliced peach, coconut and macadamia nut are cut by crushed stone and chalk on the nose. The palate is rounded in salted peach and melon flavors, but remains vibrant in acidity and firm in texture long into the finish.
OB 93
Owen Bargreen
The seriously good 2022 Ridge Vineyards Grenache Blanc has 14% Picpoul added. Right away this offers alluring aromatics of star jasmine and honeysuckle alongside ripe kiwi and kumquat notes. The palate is very fresh and lithe with a soft mouthfeel and great sense of length. Juicy starfruit and pear fruits greet you, as this Southern Rhône inspired wine is drinking nicely now, and is best enjoyed over the next five to seven years to come. Drink 2023-2029.
