2018 Durell Vineyard Pinot Blanc

2018 Durell Vineyard Pinot Blanc

A white Burgundian cousin of pinot noir, our pinot blanc is known for its bright, refreshing characteristics. This unique varietal is pure elegance – with subtle notes of Asian pears and a minerality that provides a structure and nuance. More neutral than oak, our Acacia barrel regimen adds a soft and delicate toast. The 2018 is both elevated and understated. It is a springtime favorite from Durell Vineyard, one of our six estate vineyards and home to some of Sonoma’s most quintessential grapes.

More Information
2018 was one of those magical years. With a mild spring, the early growing season plodded along at a relatively normal pace. Once the berries set, we knew we had a healthy and full crop. So full, in fact, we did a number of fruit-thinning passes to reduce load on the vines. Even with this, we were happy to see an above average harvest with superb quality. We started picking in earnest after Labor Day, with cool, fall weather that allowed us to transfer the grapes in a calm and measured pace. All in all, 2018 will go down as a year to remember, with wines of true depth and power.
