2014 Barrel Select Pinot Blanc

Price: $22

12 Bottles: $224

(15% discount)


Tasting Notes

Pinot Blanc is near and dear to the YVV family, we try not to play favorites, but, if we had a favorite white wine, Pinot Blanc would be it. This bottling is a big, lush and more structured version of our go to style, the barrel time adds density and ample structure to the ripe tropical notes of melon and pineapple. This will pair beautifully with a rich and oily salmon dish, contrasting in flavor and aiding in a reset to the palate between bites.

Vineyard:

We are the second oldest vineyard in the McMinnville AVA. McMinnville AVA is known for having intense, enduring wines. Some of our top soils were brought here over 15,000 years ago in the Missoula floods, which makes this area incredibly unique. We have the perfect climate, being in the rain-shadow of the Coastal Foothills, with winds that form from the Van Duzer corridor, and western facing sloping hillsides. All of this makes for unique wines of quality grown 100% from our Estate.

Vintage:

2014 was an early year from the start, bud break happened in mid-April. A warm spring supported vine growth in preparation for flowering and fruit set,which were both earlier than usual as well. The vineyard manager and crew took extra care to pull leaves during this very vigorous growing season to keep disease stress down and it certainly paid off, the fruit came in clean and ripe. 2014 is fondly referred to as “the big and beautiful vintage” by YVV insiders. The hot and long growing season allowed us to have higher yields than usual while still delivering gorgeous quality fruit.

Winemaking:

Grapes were hand-picked and delivered to the crush pad in perfect condition.They were meticulously hand sorted, de-stemmed and pressed. Juice was settled overnight, and then racked and inoculated. Slow, cool fermentation encourages a full bouquet and complex flavors.
