2008 Novy Family Wines Willamette Valley Blanc de Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., 117 cases, $25, released October 2009. Produced from a block of Arbre Vert Vineyard planted to Dijon 115 clone which did not reach full ripeness in 2007. Whole cluster pressed, allowed to settle for a day, and drained into a combination of stainless steel and older oak barrels. Fermentation continued and the wine went through partial malolactic fermentation. · Light apricot color in the glass. Aromas of baked bread, mocha, oak and pear. Delicate flavors of pears, toast and orange flower water. Welcome acidity without tannins. An appropriate aperitif or perfect accompaniment to lighter fare and best served slightly chilled. Good.
