Product Description:

"There's only about 300 acres of Pinot Blanc in Oregon. It's the first place that real Pinot Blanc was planted. In California, the “Pinot Blanc” is actually Melon du Bourgogne.

“Pinot Blanc” is the historic grape of Burgundy. - Drew Voit

The distinction between Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay wasn't even made until the 1800s.

Drew's idea with Pinot Blanc is to see what happens when it gets a more Burgundian inspired aging regimen

The Pinot Blanc Sur Lie comes from Meredith Mitchell Vineyard. It was planted by Susan Meredith and Frank Mitchell in 1990, the vineyard sits nestled in the foothills of the Coast Range just outside McMinnville, OR. Rising from 450 - 650 ft in elevation, the soils are a mixture of uplifted marine sediments over fractured basalt, contributing to wines of great complexity.

No new oak, he's using large format barrels (300 - 500 liter barrels). 9-10 months on lees, no ML, no battonage." - Importer
