2014 Pinot Blanc SRH
Sta. Rita Hills
Our 2014 Pinot Blanc is a wine of poise and class. Produced exclusively from Block 4 at La Encantada Vineyard, with its distinctive soils formed by a gravelly alluvial fan. The very well-drained soils control the natural vigor of the variety concentrating the aromatics. Seductive aromas of lime, gardenia flowers, kiwi fruit and marzipan, with an elegant salty mineral disposition. On the palate, the wine is lively and vibrant, showing further notes of lime peel, citrus, roasted almonds, and a marine fog-like saline character. Our Pinot Blancs develop for several years in bottle. The 2014 is now opening up, and with its vibrant acid, it could reward patient cellaring for 3 to 4 years.
