2017 Pinot Bianco

2017 Pinot Bianco

Varietals: 80% Pinot Bianco, 15% Pinot Grigio, 5% Tocai Friulano

Vineyard: Pinot Bianco and Tocai Friulano from Neeson Vineyard; Pinot Grigio from Bella Vista

ABV: 13.4%

Flavor Notes: A wine that is not flamboyantly fruity or floral in style, yet has a captivating presence and structure. The Pinot Bianco’s true beauty is the tangible core of the wine: the subtle interplay of lees and skin contact, acidity, minerality, and structure. A wonderful choice for fans of Chablis and Pinot Bianco of the Friuli region. The Pinot Bianco grape is a more floral and delicate member of the Pinot family, and Winemaker Sean O’Keefe added a strategic small amount of Tocai Friulano that had been sitting on its skins for 40 days. The addition enhanced firmness, phenolics, and backbone; making an almost tea-like, pomegranate tincture. Ours is different from other local Pinot Bianco’s — we’ve made a wine that’s not shooting for easy likes. 

Pairings: Seafood and shellfish, pasta primavera, fava beans, mushroom risotto. 

Vinification: The Pinot Bianco was picked at the end of October 2017 and pressed whole cluster. Fermented in stainless steel, the Pinot Bianco was then blended with skin fermented Tocai Friulano and Pinot Grigio and allowed to rest on the lees for 50 days. Our special stamp on this wine is a cue from winemakers in Friuli — added texture and flavor from Tocai Friulano (native to the Friuli region). The Tocai Friulano has just the right tannin and phenolics to give this wine a rounded texture and mouthfeel, while the Pinot Grigio adds mid-palate weight 

Suggested Cellaring: Perfect to enjoy now through 2023
