2015 Campesino Cellars Chiquis Grenache Blanc Sonoma Coast Ceja Farms Quick Sip
Another excellent purchase from Campesino Cellars and winemaker Macario Montoya. Our 100+ degree days called for a refreshing sip and this bottle was perfect. Love the label drawn by daughters Isa & Alina for mom Griselda. The flowers represent what they think of when hearing her name....special pretty and happy. Mom you should be so proud and Dad you as well.
The nose is a tropical delight with apple, lemon/lime, honeydew melon and cantaloupe. The fruit is crisp and fresh racing from the glass.
The mouth I'll call this on a scale of 1-10 10+++. Juicy pear and ripe melon treat the palate with a hint of citrus zest. The finish is long and I would agree with the winemaker definitely "mouthwatering". Nicely balanced and highly recommended to be in your glass. Well done Macario. I'm a fan of Grenache Blanc!
