Trinitas Pinot Blanc Russian River Valley 2006
This fruit-driven wine is abundant with floral, melon and apple aromas with similar flavors on the palate. From the clay loam soils in the Russian River Valley, this wine displays the best of the Trinitas factors - sun, soil and human influences - in which it is grown. Winemaking: Picked at 24° Brix natural sugar, this wine was fermented in stainless steel and rested in neutral oak for three months (for clarification) resulting in a clean wine with good acidity (no malo-lactic fermentation). We used a low inoculum level of CY-3079 yeast which insured a long and slow fermentation. This yeast is an excellent strain for emphasizing the fruit characteristics, especially in white wines. Our Pinot Blanc is dry but has weight and richness from extended contact with its secondary yeast lees and its relative ripeness.
Trinitas Cellars only releases a limited quantity of Pinot Blanc each vintage, but the fruit-driven, full flavored wine is one of the more memorable white selections from the distinctive winery. Sourced from the Saralee’s Vineyard in the middle of the cool Russian River Valley appellation, from a small block of vines called the Frog Patch, the Trinitas Pinot Blanc displays the best of the Trinitas factors – sun, soil and humanity. Awarded a Gold Medal from the Hilton Head Fine Wine Competition and 88 Points from Wine Enthusiast, this Pinot Blanc is dry but has the weight and richness from extended aging time in neutral oak barrels. Abundant with floral, melon and apple aromas with similar flavors on the palate, the Trinitas 2006 Pinot Blanc is fruit driven with a clean, refreshing finish that leaves you wanting more. A great wine to pair with food, we recommended smoky, citrus shrimp, grilled fish tacos, and vegetable stir fry. Aged 3 months in neutral oak. 100% Pinot Blanc. Enjoy now until 2012
