    Winemaker Notes

    Lichen Estate's innovative Les Pinots Noir & Gris 2014 offers an unorthodox blend of red and white grapes (60% Pinot Noir, 40% Pinot Gris). Aromas of grapefruit and white peach in the nose are matched by citrus gripping the mouth from lips to throat. Sweet Tarts brush dangerously close to Angostura bitters without touching, wrapped by a hint of effervescence. Les Pinots offers a density in the mid-palate balanced by a dancing rhubarb edge that tempts one's tongue to swab the cheeks. Enjoy the long, savory, almost briny finish.

    Lichen Estate, Anderson Valley, Mendocino, California
    Image of winery
    The 203-acre Lichen Estate sits at the heart of Anderson Valley, half way between Boonville and Philo. They have planted seven acres of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris vines in 2008 on meter-by-meter spacing, the same used for Grand Cru vineyards of Burgundy and Champagne. We have farmed it organically from the outset. This singular vineyard produces singular wines.

    Anderson Valley

    View all wine

    Surrounded by redwood forests and blanketed in atmospheric fog, the Anderson Valley is one of California’s most picturesque appellations. Centered on the Navarro River, the region is kept cool by moist air flowing in from the Pacific Ocean. High and low temperatures can vary as much as 40 or 50 degrees within a single day, allowing for slow and gentle ripening of grapes which will in turn create elegantly balanced wines.

    The Anderson Valley is best known for Pinot Noir made in a range of styles from delicate and floral to powerful and concentrated. Chardonnay also shines here, and both varieties are often utilized for the production of some of California’s best traditional method sparkling wines. The region also draws inspiration from Alsace and produces excellent Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris.

    Other White Blends

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
