Winemaker's Notes

Our 1997 Pinot blanc is a dry, rich wine. It has an aroma of melons and spring flowers and a very smooth finish. It goes well with both traditional Chardonnay foods such as veal and pasta and traditional dry Riesling dishes such a scallops and shrimp. Pinot blanc, like Pinot gris, is believed to be a mutant cousin of Pinot noir. It is an important variety in Alsace and Fruilli in Northern Italy. In Alsace, it is often blended with Auxerrois, a more aromatic, lower acid grape. In Fruilli, where the weather is warmer, it is not blended. In both areas the wine is made in stainless, fiberglass or neutral oak puncheons to emphasize the fruit. Ours is made in this style also. We made our first Pinot blanc in 1995. We have grafted all of our Chardonnay vines, and now have three acres of Pinot blanc at our vineyard.
