2016 Brecon Grenache Blanc

2014 Vio/GB

Wrote this in more of a “captain sensible” kind of day so here goes. The majority (~72%) of this Grenache Blanc is sourced from head trained vines. This is, in itself, somewhat unusual/special, particularly in the veritable wind tunnel of the Templeton Gap. The balance abuts Hoffman Mountain Ranch (Paso’s oldest Pinot 1964). It was a somewhat gritty wine when young, hence released post summer, but like the proverbial ugly duckling this wine has blossomed into something quite………….

Ah ha! A brace of vineyards nonetheless, now that's a pheasant plucker term you don’t hear very often. In fact it's a brace of braces ie two Grenache Blanc vineyards (Derby and Anna’s) and a couple of Viognier vineyards (Webster and Hastings). Now, why don’t we play odd one out. Which one hails from the Templeton gap rather than Adelaida? Which one is head trained? (Hint rhymes with Furby)
