2014 Winter’s Hill Dundee Hills Willamette Valley Pinot Blanc

13.0% alc., pH 3.05, 286 cases, $17. Whole cluster pressed within hours of harvest. Fermented slowly to dryness in stainless steel tanks. Malolactic fermentation blocked. · Very light yellow color in the glass. A little reduction upon opening resolves over time in the glass. Aromas of pear, grapefruit and toast. Very high-pitched on the palate with tart flavors of grapefruit and lemon-lime. The wine finishes with a dry, soprano finish. Not particularly enjoyable on its own, this acidic wine will show better with fried or fatty foods. Score: 86. Reviewed June 14, 2015
