2020 Girasole Vineyards Pinot Blanc
96 Points & Double Gold / Sunset Magazine
The certified organic grapes for this wine were hand harvested from our home ranch, Redwood Valley Vineyards, early in the morning of September 25, 2020. The cold fruit was destemmed and immediately transferred to our tank press. The juice was fermented cold at 50-55F to produce maximum esters and delicate flavors. The wine was then cold aged in stainless steel at 40F for 90 days to retain freshness and fruit character.
This lovely wine draws you in with colors of straw mixed with yellow hues and flecks of gold. Aromas of ripe tropical fruits, white peach and citrus blossoms greet your senses. Upon taking your first sip, you are rewarded with flavors of fig, apple and orange peel. This is a vibrant dry white wine, with a terrific balance of fruit, crisp acids and our signature Mendocino minerality. 100% Pinot Blanc. Vegan Friendly.
