Winemaker Notes

The 2008 Pinot Blanc displays gemlike clarity and a pale green hue that makes the complex and powerful aromas that leap from the glass all the more surprising. The initial impression of stone fruits is followed by hints of lime, lemongrass and clover honey. The flavors follow the aromas with highlights of lively grapefruit, gooseberry and a pleasing minerality combining to create a clean and refreshing palate impression. Crisp acidity balances the fruit while the finish offers silky texture and unexpected length. Enjoy this wine by itself as an apéritif, or pair it with shellfish, sushi, sashimi, Thai Food and pasta primavera. It is ready to drink now, but will certainly benefit from two or three years in the cellar. Serve well chilled.

In WillaKenzie's gravity-flow winery, the 2008 Pinot Blanc was made in a rich and complex Alsatian style. The winery pressed whole clusters, and after cold settling of the juice, inoculated with a special selection of yeasts, chosen to enhance the fruit's aromatics. the juice was fermented in stainless-steel tanks slowly and at low temperatures to retain the freshness and subtlety of the fruit.

Wine Enthusiast
This is a truly lovely, elegant Pinot Blanc, from a winery that has a fine handle on the grape. Scents of lemongrass and grapefruit run headlong into delicate, evocative fruit flavors of melon, gooseberry, lime and stone fruits. Though quite dry and tart, it has so much complexity that it never turns sour.

WillaKenzie Estate
WillaKenzie Estate is located in Oregon's Willamette Valley on rolling hillsides in the Chehalem Mountains. The winery was named after the Willakenzie soil on which the vineyards are planted to convey the influence that the soil imparts on the wine's flavors and aromas. The vineyards are planted with grapes of the Pinot family, mostly new Dijon clones of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris from Alsace. Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris are cool climate grapes, which are particularly well adapted to Oregon.
