So what's the deal with a White Pinot Noir? The Pinot Noir grapes are brought to the winery and pressed immediately and made into a wine before they have time to sit on the skins and extract any color. Now you have a White Pinot Noir. An the taste, well let's explore.
I tasted Left Coast Cellars 2015 White Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. My first White Pinot Noir experience. It's always good being the first because I had no expectations. The grapes were fermented in stainless steel and sur lie aged in stainless steel for 5 months.
The wine was almost crystal clear and very acidic, It looked like a glass of water. Aromas of stone fruit filled the glass with hints of lemon and spiced pear. Citrus flavors with a touch of honey filled my palate. There was hints of minerality throughout the experience.
Try something different. The SRP is $25
