BRAND NEW "FIND"

"Tasting similar to Chardonnay, this has a buttery, creamy texture that frames orange, citrus and tropical fruit flavors. It gains extra points for delicacy and balance. The appellation is in San Benito County, about 25 miles inland from Monterey." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Vineyard & Harvest
2010 was an extremely cool year which resulted in a late harvest, with grapes not harvested until the 3rd week of October. Crews worked into the early morning hours in an effort to get the grapes off of the vine before late October rains. This Pinot Blanc is sourced off of a small 5 acre block of old vines which are roughly 35-45 years old.
