Brander Uno Mas Grenache Blanc & Sauvignon Blanc Santa Barbara 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Brander Uno Mas Grenache Blanc & Sauvignon Blanc Santa Barbara 2006 : WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: 90 POINTS Right up there with last years bottling, this Grenache Blanc-Sauvignon Blanc blend is unoaked, offering pure flavors of terroir-inspired fruit. High acidity backs up the lemongrass, pineapple, peach and honeysuckle flavors that finish so dry and spicy. Editors Choice. S.H.NVWE NOTES: Distinctive and brilliantly refreshing, if still a bit reserved, this wine has focused scents of lemon, apple skin, smoke, melon and a trace of orange, tied to mineral notes like those found in the water of a mountain stream. It is crisply dry and even more strongly mineral-infused on the palate, where preserved lemon and melon and a touch of smoke are developing themes. The finish is densely packed and extremely long, growing steadily in appeal as the wine airs. A terrific foil to grilled chicken or veggies, steamed clams or mussels, raw oysters, sushi and the like, it is an outstanding summer sipper as well. 70% Grenache Blanc and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. 163 cases produced.BRANDER UNO MAS GRENACHE BLANC & SAUVIGNON BLANC SANTA BARBARA 2006

Welcome to the Brander Vineyard - one of the original vineyards in Santa Ynez Valley and the producer of world-class Sauvignon Blanc wines in a variety of styles, as well as small quantities of hand-crafted Bordeaux-style red wines. Please visit Our Wines to read more about the Brander Vineyard wines. The Tasting Room at the Brander Vineyard is open for tasting and sales seven days a week. Tours can be arranged for small groups by appointment and guests are welcome to enjoy the picnic grounds. Visit the Tasting Room section for opening hours and directions; and the Wine Country section for suggestions on places to stay and dine, as well as things to see in the area. The Sauvignon Blancs have had more than their 15 minutes of fame in the wine press – beginning with the heralded first gold medal ever awarded to a Santa Barbara County wine in 1978. The new millennium has brought accolades such as Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Week and “Smart Buy”, Wine Enthusiast Editors Choice, scores in the 90’s from many prestigious wine critics, and even a “best value” from the renowned New York Times.
