Pale silvery amber color. Bright, toasty, interesting aromas and flavors of toasted coconut, baked pineapple and papaya, and bourbon barrel with a soft, crisp, dry-yet-fruity full body and a tingling, delightful, breezy green apples and delicately spice nuts finish with silky, fruit tannins and no oak. A unique and elegant white pinot noir with lots of nuance.

White Pinot Noir

Wine Glass White.jpg
Serve in a White Wine Glass
White Pinot Noirs are white-to-very-pale-rosé colored wines made from the dark skinned pinot noir grape by gently pressing the grapes to remove a clear juice and removing that juice from the skins to prevent coloration. This technique is very common in Champagne production, but relatively new on the American wine scene where pinot noir producers in Oregon have recently embraced the style. Stylistically, they are somewhere between a pinot gris and a rose with flavors of apple, peach and tropical fruits and crisp acidity being typical. Pair with spicy fish, chicken, and seafood dishes.
