Valley of the Moon Pinot Blanc 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

"This grape sometimes achieves near-greatness in its homeland, the Alsace region of France, and now California vintners apparently are starting to pay more attention to it. I've been seeing more domestic versions recently, from California and, I think, Oregon. I've tried a few from California and they seem to mimic the Alsatian style -- exceptionally fresh and clean-tasting, with lots of acid and bright citrus flavors. In this version I pick up aromas of tangerines and flavors of lime and grapefruit, and the body is a little lighter than your typical Sauvignon Blanc. Its ideal mate would be raw oysters. "

Valley of the Moon Winery has been in operation longer than any other winery in the Glen Ellen area. The stone structures themselves date back to 1863, and have great historial significance. In 1997 the winery was transformed into a contemporary winemaking facility; still the original heritage was preserved. Valley of the Moon Winery, as it exsists today, is a testament to both vision and rebirth. The history and old walls remain, but the technology and styling is resolutely modern. This harmonious marriage of past and present provides the perfect environment to craft world-class wines. www.valleyofthemoonwinery.com Read less
