Eyrie Vineyards Willamette Valley Pinot Blanc 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Soil driven on the nose with a minty herbal edge to the unripe honeydew, fennel, and dried citrus peel aromas. tense and taut on entry with terrific acidity unfurling on the palate along with layered flavors of dusty earth, unripe pear and green apple flavors. This has a touch of tannin to it adding another layer of textural interest in the mouth. The texture of the wine is actually tissue fine and supported by the structure very nicely with bright citrus tinged flavors emerging on the backend and through the modest finish that ends with some sandy soil notes. Great clarity and vibrancy here with sneaky length to the fruit that turns a bit peach skin like. 91pts

Quality winegrowing in America was in its infancy in the 1970’s. The Spurrier tasting in Paris in 1976 gave the first international credibility to California Cabernet and Chardonnay. Three years later, again in Paris, and the following year in Beaune, The Eyrie Vineyards 1975 Pinot noir brought international attention to Oregon, a wine region unfamiliar to almost anyone except a handful of hardy pioneers. With these two tastings, Oregon won its first recognition as the New World home for Pinot noir. Read less

This is savory and earthy on the nose with fine sandy, mineral-tinged fruit that recalls pear skins and almond skin. Very finely balanced in the mouth with an elegant gossamer texture and more mineral-flecked pear fruit. Turns a touch light on the finish, but with the lovely tense and mineral fruit that reveals an enduring sweetness, it’s easy to forgive. The savory, mineral length is really deceptive. 89pts

Nice sweetness at first with more tannic flavors on the finish.

Wine Tasting NotesOur Pinot Blanc is lean and clean, with flavors and scents characteristic of the finest Alsatian Pinot blanc. Although our production is quite limited, Eyrie Pinot Blanc is gaining a terrific following!
