Our Signature Wine is produced from some of the oldest vines on the North Fork (circa 1983). Fermented entirely in stainless steel tanks, this wine is vibrant and crisp with notes of lemongrass, rose petals, and sugared lemon peels. After a finish of star fruit and green apple, there is a touch of sea spray.
Sometimes Pinot Blanc can be a little neutral or boring, but this example is far from it. It doesn’t see a splinter of oak during the winemaking process and there is a floral edge to a nose that is dominated by fresh, clean aromas of melons, pears and yellow apples.
Though on the lighter end of the body spectrum (it’s less than 12% abv) the palate shows more of the same fruits — apple, pear and melon — with a subtle hint of lemon zest. Bright, appetite-whetting acidity is well incorporated, providing verve without being too sharp. There is a gritty pear quality to the finish that turns a bit saline at the very end.
