  • 2021 Rhapsody

    Willamette Valley Pinot Blanc

    114 cases produced. $38

    Named for George Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” we doubled production of this jazzy Pinot Blanc in 2021 by sourcing from both Plum Hill Vineyard and Elkhorn Ridge Vineyards, located at opposite ends of the Willamette Valley. Lithe and lively, Rhapsody fermented and aged for six months sur lie to produce a fuller-bodied wine. No malolactic fermentation allows crisp acidity, subtle minerality and spicy characteristics to take center stage.

    NOSE: Limestone, stonefruit, gooseberry, Key Lime, brioche, white lily.

    PALATE: Fine-grain texture with a hint of creaminess, balanced acid, lingering finish. Hints of Bosc pear, Gravenstein apple, candied grapefruit, and minerality.
