Mora Vineyard
Willamette Valley

P

inot blanc is one of our favorite varietals! Tart, mineral notes are what we crave and this wine delivers all that and more. In the cellar, Vincent handles this wine similar to a Chardonnay. He allows the wine to go through full malolactic fermentation in barrel and practices extended lees contact. After a year in barrel, he bottles it up and shares it with the world. All this effort creates a wine with great texture and richness, while still retaining bright citrus notes.

Sticking our noses in our glasses, we smelled that abundant citrus! Tart lemons and ripe kumquats practically jumped out as we swirled our wine. On second sniff we found tropical starfruit and a mouth watering tartness mixed with wet stones. This wine tasted like it smelled– tart, minerally, citrusy and had this lovely texture that made us want more. We were told this wine was made to drink young so don’t stash this bottle away in your cellar. Instead, enjoy it (or several) this summer!

This wine is a great porch sipper but would also be great with fish tacos, oysters or a summer salad with freshly picked veggies from the garden.

SRP $20.

    Tart lemons and ripe kumquats sounds lovely as part of the flavor profile! I can imagine that would go great with a light pasta when dining al fresco for dinner too!

    Great descriptions of the wine! I loved the interview too, especially his roundabout way of avoiding business by going into English and then still winding up in business (as well as creating his own successful business). He’s an inspiration for the rest of us liberal arts majors still trying to find our way these days. 🙂
