Tasting Notes

The 2014 vintage gave us perfect conditions to increase the complexity of our youthful Estate Vineyard Pinot Blanc. Keeping with inspiration from France’s Alsace region, our Pinot Blanc was fermented in all stainless steel with a small amount of neutral French oak casks sur lie. Bright notes of pear, crisp green apple and firm white peach fill the nose, accompanied by more savory notes of honeysuckle, fresh honey and sesame seed. Your palate is greeted with Bartlett pear and rich melon, while wet limestone and a hint of ripe pear peel add complexity through the finish of honeyed grapefruit oil and mouthwatering spice.
