Grenache Blanc, How I Love Thee

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from the winery

This wine hid in my basement. Which is a total shame since it appears it’s now sold out.  However if they decide to make it again, you should go get some. Quickly apparently.  I still want to tell you about it though so you know it’s yummy and will be aware of it next time they release some.  The wine in question? The 2009 Hahn Grenache Blanc, which clocked in at 13.5% alcohol by volume and had a real cork closure.

Four takeaways from this wine:

1.) For the quality and price point I find Hahn wines to be some of the best around.

2.) I love Grenache Blanc. You should too.

3.) We drank this with grilled chicken. Perfection.

4.) I would really like Hahn to make it again.

On the nose I got apple, flowers, white pepper, pineapple, star fruit, tropical notes, yellow apple, coconut cream, grapefruit, and lemon.  In the mouth I got apple, pear, star fruit, grapefruit, lemon, and an herbal note. Overall, I found the wine to be light and fresh.

  1. Hahn does make some great wine. They used to make the Santa Lucia Highlands Cabernet Franc which I believe they discontinued and as this was one of my top 5 Cabernet Francs I was very disappointed when they did this. I’ve sent them several emails concerning this but…

  2. Oh, that is too bad. I find they often make small lots and only some times have them. Maybe they will bring it back some day.
