Our 2019 Pinot Blanc is featured in Wine Spectator Magazine’s Tasting Highlights! This sneak peek of top scores is entitled “12 Vibrant White Wines from Oregon and Washington” and announces a 90 point score for this wine:
“90 POINTS. Bold and beautiful aromas of honeysuckle and apricot open to honeydew and orange zest flavors that finish with an oily texture and crisp acidity.”Tim Fish, Wine Spectator Senior Editor
According to Senior Editor Tim Fish “Oregon winery Elk Cove has a long history of making tasty whites with elegance and personality. Winemaker Adam Campbell, son of founders Pat and Joe Campbell, harvests Pinot Blanc from the estate’s hillside vineyards. The grapes are whole-cluster pressed before a cold fermentation in stainless steel, producing a bold wine with honeydew and orange zest flavors.”
How do we make our Pinot Blanc? It helps that we have 35 years of experience with Blanc’s sister varietals, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, because all three are very similar plants. We farm our Pinot Blanc vines on three different sites well-suited to growing this aromatic white wine. Learn more about our Pinot Blanc here.
Our current vintage of Pinot Blanc is available here while supplies last. Cheers!
