2015 Blanc de Noir

$15.00

This semi-dry wine has clear, slightly salmon color with an inviting floral nose. It has a refreshing mouth feel of acid, nicely balanced with a trace of residual sugar. Notes of pomegranate are mixed with a trace of citrus. This is a great wine to sip in warm weather or use as a starter for lunch or dinner. It pairs well with all seafood, shell fish and is terrific with Asian food, especially those dishes like sweet and sour shrimp that have a slightly sweet flavor. Try pouring some of this Blanc de Noir over a fruit compote and savor the integration of the acid and traces of sugar that make this a special treat.

Product Description

In response to popular demand, Cardwell Hill Cellars has increased the production of our off-dry Blanc de Noir. This white wine produced from Pinot Noir grapes is our fifth vintage of this exciting new wine. The residual sugar level is 1.4 which gives a honey flavor on the finish, balanced with high acidity and notes of citrus.
This Blanc de Noir is produced solely from a block of Pommard Clone in our Pinot Noir vineyards. We pick a designated amount of fruit and immediately transfer it to the wine press so that there is minimal color transfer from the blue-black Pinot Noir clusters. After settling for several days, the wine is racked into stainless steel fermentors and a selected amount of yeast is added. When fermentation is complete, the wine is chilled to 30 degrees Fahrenheit to cold stabilize the final product.
