Food Pairings for Valley of the Moon Sonoma Pinot Blanc
This traditional Alsatian-style wine is a blend of grapes from vineyards that are located in the Russian River Valley and the Southern Sonoma Valley. Both viticultural areas have deep alluvial soil and a cool climate due to the moderating influence of the Pacific Ocean and the San Pablo Bay. These cool microclimates are responsible for preserving the crisp acidity and fresh fruit character of the wine. The 2009 Pinot Blanc was whole-cluster pressed into stainless steel tanks and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve the varietal fruit aromas and flavors of the grapes. After fermentation portions of the wine lots were aged in French oak and Acacia wood barrels to enhance richness and provide additional complexity to the wine.
Inviting aromas of honeysuckle, peach and lychee nut. Integrated and rich fruit flavors of pear, apple and nectarine lead to a lengthy finish balanced with zesty acidity.
Aged 4 months in Steel.
