2019 Celebrate Pinot Noir Blanc
Aromas of wild strawberries, red-skinned apples, and Rainier cherries. On the palate, there's a burst of apple and pear, followed by a whisper of ginger, and a tart, citrusy minerality in the midpalate, and a long finish for a wine of this style. Fine bead with medium-light palate weight.
Estate 115 Dijon Clones planted in 1999
The grapes were harvested by hand and whole cluster pressed, separating the hard press fraction. After the juice was settled and racked off the heavy solids, fermenting in stainless steel barrels. After fermentation was complete, the wine aged on the fine lees until the following spring, when it was racked and blended. To sparkle, the wine was transferred to a high pressure tank, and the pressure was slowly raised over five days until the ideal levels were achieved.
