El Dorado Grenache Blanc 2021750 ml
Pale straw-yellow in the glass, this is a refreshing and elegant introduction to the terroir of El Dorado. The wine opens with subtle aromas of pear mingled with mineral notes, a testament to the warm sun and cool breezes in the Sierra Foothills. On the palate, complex, yet delicate notes of white flowers, lemon meringue, yellow plum and homemade applesauce speak to the diverse soils that form the base of the vineyard. Sustainable.
The original Skinner Ranch, opened in 1861, was located in what is now known as Rescue, CA. The original cellar from the J. Skinner Winery still exists and was home in recent years to the Cameron Park Nursery. In early 2014, Mike and Carey Skinner purchased the property with the goal of preserving it and protecting it from development. The area around Skinners, CA today is paved with vines planted by Mike and Carey, vines that they refer to as Legacy Grapes – including Mission, Zinfandel, Trousseau, Grenache, Carignane and the Skinner clone of Petit Bouschet. “From what we’ve learned about James Skinner,” says Mike, “he was a very forward-thinking guy. We really believe he’d like what we’ve done with the heritage he left us.” Skinner wines are all about tipping a brim to the wines of the Old World while embracing the glorious mountain terroir of El Dorado County.
