Vineyard: Planted in 1991, the 50-acre Hawks View Vineyard offers the ideal growing conditions for Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris. The eastern-facing slope and Laurelwood soils, combined with dry farming and hand harvesting, allow for wines of great character and distinction.
Aging: Aged 6 months sur lees in 40% French oak, 60% Stainless steel.
Tasting Notes: White Pinot Noir offers notes of guava, pear, and apple Blossom. The palate is rich and broad with a crisp, balanced acidity.
What makes this wine special: White Pinot Noir is the hybridization of freshness and brightness often times associated with Pinot Gris, buoyed by the delicate attributes of a Blanc de Noirs. The wine is truly unique.
