Winter's Hill Estate Pinot Blanc Dundee Hills 2015

Editorial Review by Snooth Editorial:

Mineral and saline notes on the nose with dried apricot and green apple. In the mouth it's quite acidic and full of citrus flavors, mostly lemon and grapefruit with more saline and a bit of emollience coming later on in the form of a silky mouthfeel. 3/5

This smells terrific, it’s not very aromatic but then again Pinot Blanc isn’t an aromatic grape. what it does deliver is this subtle purity with hints of white fruit, white peach, crab apples, chalky soil notes and a fine base of sweet dried floral notes. Bright and focused in the mouth, this has a fine mineral base on the palate with lively acids helping to lend this energy in the mouth. It has a touch of roundness which it could stand to lose, but the flavors of lemon curd, lime zest, baked apple and herb seeds are pure and bright and drift on the long slightly dusty finish. Really a great showing. 92pts

Rough nose, funky and oily. The mouth is grassy and nones the pleasant.

Nose of green peppers. Dry, plasticy flavor - a bit like sucking on a water pistol.

Light nose that doesn't offer much. Very funky, oily, dirty mouth feel at first, although that does blow off/mute over time. Leaves pineapple and mango flavors. Acidic finish infused with lychee.
