Reynvaan is a small, family-owned label based in Walla Walla that specializes in Estate-grown Rhone and Bordeaux varietal wines.
Since being founded in 2007, winemaker Matt Reynvaan has racked up an impressive résumé of accolades and big scores.
Unless you are an avid Rhone Valley white wine drinker, Grenache Blanc might be an unknown grape to you. It is used extensively,however, in the white wines of Chateuneuf du Pape and also in various parts of Spain where it is known as Garnacha Blanca. It tends to be a soft, almost “fatty” grape, but is known for picking up beautiful minerality if grown in the proper soil. Well, this one comes from the Reynvaan estate vineyard in the Rocks district of the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley. The site literally looks exactly like Chateauneuf du Pape. Honeyed apricot dominates the fruit essence of this stunning wine. A few swirls in and you will begin to experience orange blossoms, persimmon, sapote fruit, crème brulee, and even a dusting of cinnamon. Serve slightly chilled, but not too cold! You’ll really want to let the aromatics vaporize for maximum enjoyment.
From Washington Wine Blog:
This deeply hued wine begins with aromas of honeysuckle, apricot and cantaloupe. The palate has an incredible texture with Pazzaz apple, kiwi, pink grapefruit and roasted pinapple. This has incredible range and the mouthfeel delights. Refreshing, yet rich, this gorgeous wine will cellar well over the next decade. Drink 2018-2028- 94 points
