Our 2018 Pinot Blanc was an “Editor’s Choice” and awarded an excellent 92 points by Wine Enthusiast. We anticipate this to be one of the most highly rated Pinot Blancs, as our 2017 vintage was also awarded 92 points and was ranked #5 in Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s Top 100 Wines of 2018.
“Intense in juicy, succulent fruit, this opens with lovely botanical aromas and flavors of ripe lime, grapefruit and fresh apple. The flavors are layered and deep, lifted by refreshing minerality.” – Paul Gregutt
