2022 Pinot Blanc
Double Gold- SF Chronicle
Our VP of Winemaking, Dave Nagengast, 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. Why aren’t there more Pinot Blancs out there for such a cool, intriguing wine? 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. But hey, we’ve never let a challenge get in the way of our pursuit to make intriguing and unique wines.
Our 2022 Pinot Blanc is a rich and expressive wine, with fragrant aromas of yellow apple, ripe pear, and quince. On the palate, it is medium-bodied with a soft, round mouthfeel. The lingering finish has subtle notes of butterscotch with a kiss of vanilla.
