A rare, white grape mutation of pinot noir, our pinot blanc is radiant and refreshing through and through. These grapes are right at home planted in one of the cooler bowls of our much-loved estate vineyard, Durell, due to the chilly night breezes and elongated growing season perfectly suited for this unusual variety. This wine sees partial oak treatment, with the balance fermented and aged in stainless-steel barrels and a single, new Acacia barrel. Acacia highlights the bright floral notes of this wine and lends a softer tannin than the more common style found in French Oak.
In this bottling, we love the elegant flavors of white nectarine flower, crisp green apple, and slate-like minerality. As the most recent addition to our Durell Vineyard lineup, this brilliant wine is the perfect sip for springtime.
This wine has sold out. The 2020 vintage will be released in Spring 2022.
