Balena is a delicate, aromatic blend of Pinot Grigio, Viognier, and Grenache Blanc. Balena is Italian for whale, and this blend is a nod to our organically grown Whale Rock Vineyard. Made in an Italian Pinot Grigio style, Balena is crisp, fruity, lean, and refreshing. The Oakenshield Wines are created to celebrate the spirit of the good life to be enjoyed with friends and family, both past and present.
Notes from our winemaker
What I love about creating blends is the ability to make a better or more complex wine than having the individual wines on their own with harmony and balance being the primary goal. Pinot Grigio provides the acidity and structural base for this blend. The Grenache Blanc is aged in neutral puncheons to add complexity and is blended in to lift the aromatics adding tropical fruit aromas and flavors. Viognier is added for texture, creating a lush middle.
