2021 Pinot Blanc
Dave Nagengast, our VP of Winemaking, describes Pinot Blanc as “the white wine for red wine drinkers”. With more weight than most other white varietals, it is opulent, round and creamy, yet finishes with a bright acidity. For such a cool, intriguing wine, why aren’t there more Pinot Blancs out there? For starters, it’s persnickety in the vineyard and low-yielding. It’s the genetic cousin of Pinot Gris, which is a genetic mutation of Pinot Noir, which is quite a capricious varietal. Our 2021 Pinot Blanc is expressive, with fragrant aromas of yellow apple, ripe pear and stone fruit. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with a soft, round mouthfeel. The lingering finish has subtle notes of caramel and vanilla.
