2017 'Coeur Blanc' White Pinot Noir 750ml
Coeur Blanc is an extremely special and limited production white wine made from fully mature Pinot Noir grapes. At harvest, 100% estate grown Pinot Noir grapes from selected vineyard blocks are handpicked and carefully sorted. The grapes are then gently whole-cluster pressed, limiting contact with the grape skins so that only the purest essence, or “white heart” juice is expressed. The resulting juice is barrel fermented in French oak and then aged on the lees prior to bottling.
Light golden in color, the 2017 Coeur Blanc offers alluring aromas of white flowers, white stone fruit and lemon-lime. Electric acidity gives way to a rich mid-palate that showcases layers of deeply complex flavors of peach and exotic notes of lychee. A soft, linen-like minerality leads to a long, beautiful finish. This is easily one of the finest examples of Coeur Blanc that we have ever created.
