2019 Pinot Blanc, Santa Barbara County

Santa Barbara County has the climate and terroir to allow many varietals not well known to thrive and become something more, unexpected. Pinot Blanc, although not the most glamorous member of the Pinot family, has proven its worth. The 2019 keeps on evolving from delicious and fresh at release, to a richer more complex wine with age. The grapes are carefully handpicked and sorted in the vineyard. After harvesting, the grapes are whole cluster pressed, and juice is quickly settled and chilled to begin barrel fermentation. The wine is dry and completed malo-lactic fermentation. After a year in French oak barrels, 25% new, it was bottled. This is a rich, Chardonnay-esque white with notes of apple and almond backed by gentle toasty oak. The palate is viscous and the finish goes on and on. Bottle Price: $39.00
